    Thanks for the help on rim width. I'm about to order the new wheels and have a question on backspacing. Did the search but alot of apps need grinding. I run 35x12.50 BFG mt's with 4" of lift. What bs will work with NO grinding. Oh yeh, it's a 10 bolt diff. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    If it's a 1/2 ton 10 bolt (6 lug), you won't have to grind at all. You can run 15" aluminum or steel rims, and I recommend anything from 3-4" of backspacing...3 5/8" would be ideal.

    According to your profile, you are still running front and rear 6-lug 10 bolts axles. Therefore, you will not need to grind anything. Most rims come in the 3-4" range, so take your pick. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
