    Id run 3.5"-4" with that much width and that wide of a rim...Of course youd have to grind the calipers...

    if you run or are going to run a 60 trust me go 2.5 so you dont need to grind the calipers. it takes longer than you think. and i ran 3.5 and it still took forever.

    so 3.5" backspacing on the 14bff will stick out the tires a couple inches and ill still be able to tuck them nice without hitting the top outside of the fenders?

    This is what 2.5" back spacing looks like with 38.5 X 14.5 X 15 SX's. No grinding involved.
