Default Those of you running 16" wheels

I have a delema. I am currently running 265/75/16 on the stock 5 spoke 7" wide wheels. They are tucked under the truck too far for my liking, so i want to go with 8" wheel and a differnt offset to stick out flush/beyond the flairs. Does anyone have any suggestions and or pics of a similar set up? O and i need to replace my t-bars w the "1" code ones from a sport track and replace my "K" code worn out rear springs with new K codes. Hopefully then the truck will sit somewhat level.

No pics, sorry, but i have the 16X8's (same tire size as you) with a Back spacing of 3.75 (stock for our trucks is 4.25) so my tires are perfectly even with the edge of the wheel fenders.

If you decide to go with aftermarket wheels, let me know. I would be interested in your current wheels.

16x8 w/4" backspacing



the 4" backspacing isn't enough imo. i would also go 3.75 or 3.5.

with my tires, the inner lugs on the sidewall rub my frame a tiny bit at full lock. but narrower tires would fix that.
