    I want to fill in some space in my wheel wells. I want to go up to a 4 inch lift with 35's, but I think I am going to have trouble fitting it in my garage. ANyway what I want to ask is how do I get my tires to come out wider. Almost to the wheel well. I dont want that look like I am running some rinky dinky tire because I have 33's now. Any suggestions?

    Wider wheels or spacers will make them stick out farther. The wider wheels will bring down the height also, but, give you more tread on the road. The spacers will bring the whole set up out from the truck, I'm lookin at some spacers now.

    Hmm filling out yer profile and giving some info about what ya have is useful.
    I had 15x8 Rally wheels and went to 15x10 with 4 1/18" back spacing with 33x12.5 tires.
    The 10" wheels made a big difference.
    Of course now the tires are too small. LOL
