Idk I cant find any pics but, every few weeks I will be driving and see a f 150 or some durango with the wheels sticking 5 or 6 inches out of the wheel wells and it looks sick, I am just wondering what it is called?

Remember if you use wheel spacers..your bearings will have more pressure put on them!
