    so i have my 14bltff all set up and ready to install..just waiting on some rims..looked around to find two black 15x10 8 lugs..well everyone told me they don't carry the 8 lug in a 15..so i had to custom order them..well they were susposed to be here march 23rd..well they didn't show up. the shop i ordered them at called me up yesterday said they were in. sweet!! i was all excited gonna finally get my 14blt put in... well i go down there and wtf!!...one rim was 15x10 8 lug 2.5inch backspacing...i ordered 4 inch backspacing, and the other rim was a 16 inch rim with what looked to be 2.75 backspacing!..i was pissed..so now i still don't have any rims, and can't install my 14bltff....i'm thinking of keeping the one 15 inch rim.. but it was reccomended to me to go with a 4inch bs, will the 2.5 inch be ok? or will my back tires stick way out? or way in?..eaither way they told me it will be a "couple" weeks before the other 15 gets delivered... :mad:

    the 2.5" BS will stick your rear tires out.

    They are white. They do have black but they are more. The difference buys alot of spray paint.

    They will stick farther out. I would bitch at them and get what you ordered in the first place. Or cancel your order and find a differnet place to get them, I know summit has them.
