    Im rim shopping.. got 16.5 mud terrains.. Im not sure which kind of backspacing to get though. Does 4 inches sound good?

    Also, willl a 6x5.5 bolt pattern work on the stock 1/2 ton axles?

    Thanks

    4" should give it a pretty good stance. I run 35x12.50 16.5's on a little more than 4" of BS and I think it looks good.

    4" backspace is pretty standard for a 10" wide rim. i had 15x10's on my 1/2 tons with 4" backspace and no problems
