Default which backspacing will look baderrrass on my new meats

i got me some 33x13.50 mud grapplers today. about to order me some of them black 15x10 steelies. Two choices on Backspacing 2.5" and 3.75". Which one will make the tire stick out the sides a couple of inches, but not to the point its rediculous. googled and all, cant realy find anyone runnin' 2.5" backspacing.

The 3.75" backspacing will stick out plenty enough if you ask me. The 2.5" ones will stick out 1.5" further. Its up to you, but I would go with the 3.75" without a doubt. The further they stick out the more wear on wheel bearings and ball joints, which have a hard enough time with the stock wheels as it is.

Without knowing what rim you have and the specs I cant tell you how much further the new ones will stick out. If you have the stockers, the 3.75" ones will most likely stick out about two or more extra inches on each side.


Oh, and welcome to DF!

Dont do too much. Backspacing is mexican and puts extra tension on your suspension.
