Default okay need some info

16x8 rims, 4.5 inch backspacing and 0mm offset, going to have 285/75r16 tires on. Should I be okay fitment-wise? I want the tires to stick out a little bit, I also found a set of 16x8 rims with a 3.62 back space. Which would fit better?

The 3.62" bs wheels would be better. 4.5" is stock bs. The wider tires might rub on the inside.

Thanks! I clicked the button to order and all the sudden it has 4.5" backspace...there is another rim I was looking at its a 16x8 but the back space is 4.25 and -6 offset. Shopping for rims is such a pain lol. Here's the ones I was looking at

The more your tires stick out of your fenders the more MUD you'll get slung all over your truck.
FYI...I just bought a set of 33x12.5-15 Baja Claws from Walmart for $210.00 ea +M&B, ordered them on line and picked them up at my local store, free shipping.

Got the one rim I ordered! I'm happy so far. It'll look better once I have all 4 and my new 285/75r16 BFGs are on!

Actually not too bad for Mickey's, the tire place I go to quoted me 840 and that's a cash deal and includes mount, balance and alignment
