    15\" 8 lug rim pics?

    I'm looking to get some 15 X 10in 8 lug rims in the near future, mostly likely a black Steel rockcrawler type. Looking to run a 12.5" wide tire not sure what backspacing to go with 2.75 or 4.25 anyone have any pics of these on their trucks? Would rather do less grinding but a little worried about how far the tires may stick out past the fenders. Thanks!! /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Eatons are very expensive.

    You can see my 38.5x16x15 swampers on 15x10 rims in my webshots

    I had to grind my '60 quite a bit though, just to warn you. It was definitely worth it to keep those wide tires tucked under the body as much as possible.

    4.25 BS 15x10 with 12.5 wide TSL not quite as wide of tire really though as the SSR.
