    4 - 4.25"

    I am running 35s on 16 x 10 with 4.25 inch - perfect.

    Stock on a 10B 6 lug is 3 5/8.....if you go 4", you will Probably have a clearance problem with a tie rod end......this is for a 15" like you asked.......Not a 16" or an 8 lug.....a couple guys say that they have no probs with 4".....Most say it hits the tie rod end....Mine hits the tierod with 4", so I use a 3/8 spacer when I run my 10"......I'd say trial fit 'em on the front first.......

    Stuck?...Hell no..I still got some gas left..

    K5Jimmy,
    I just read your profile - we share a common taste in vehicles. I think it is a great combination!

    <font color=blue>I run 15x10 8 lug steel with 4 1/8" backspacing and they dont hit the tie rods. I think my old 6 lug wheels were the same, they didnt hit either

    The 8 lug front ends are two inces wider than a 1/2 ton, which means the wheel mounts an inch farther from the tie rod, my old 6 lug 15x10s were 3-5/8 backspace the new 16x10s are 4.5 almost the exact same width as before. take off a wheel put a straightedge across the mounting pad on the rotor and measure back to the tie rod to find out how much room you have.
