    Alright, I've searched and searched and can't find what I'm looking for. It seems that there are a lot going through the same thing right now looking for wheels and deciding what size to go. I need to see the difference between a 4.25" bs and a 2.5" bs on the truck. I plan on going to a 14.5 tire later on, but will have the 12.5's for a while. Is the 12.5 going to look funny on a 2.5" bs rim? I don't know. Show me what you've got.

    These are 16.5x12 rims with ~3" of backspacing and a 14.50 SSR. Not a great angle, but I can snap ya a few shots tonight when i get hone looking down the side of both trucks.

    Here is another shot. Not a great angle, but you can kinda see the stance of the 4.25 with a 12.50 tire.

    Now that's the look I'm going for. With how high my truck is, it would look better with 38's than the 36's, but that's what the PO decided to go with and since they are new, well......

    Here is a shot where you can see that my pass. side rear actually sit inside the body.

    And here is one to show how they tuck now.

    I still need to figure out the wms to wms differences between the 12 and 14 bolts. The 14 I picked up is about 67", not sure on the 12 though.

    The 14BFF is ~67.5" WMS and the half ton rears are around 65" I believe.
