    Okay, I totally mutilated that last post. Here is what I am at. I am looking at these wheels. http://store.summitracing.com/partd...sku&Ns=P_SRE_DisplayPrice|0&Ntk=KeywordSearch

    I want to put a 33x12.50 on them and not care too much about scrathing them but having a wheel that looks nice. My main question is what backspacing would i want. There is 3 3/4 or 4 3/4,,, That gives +6mm offset and a -19 mm. What would you suggest? Thanks for putting up with this! But i think this post makes more sense!

    33x12.50 on 8" rim kind of tight. best look and wear on tire with 10" rim

    I don't think 10's would be a problem.

    i agree, i had problems blowin beads with 35.1250 on 15x10 and when i got the one tons under it i had 16x8 with 35.1250 and never had a single problem, so i would go with 8s, just my 2 cents......
