Default Question on Wheel Size

I want to order some Cragar Black D Window Wheels but i have a few questions on what size to order. I know the Stock sizing but i want to know what size to order, that will look the best. The look im going for is like Fx4wannabe01's truck but i searched his post and cant find any info on it.

I plan on leaving my T-Bars cranked and doing the 3in. body lift and running 33in Goodyear MTR's.

My Question is can someone point me to the best size (rim and backspace) and also can I use my stock center caps? and if someone has a link to the best place to buy them that would be great too.

you should be able to run a 33x12.50 tire so you can use the 15x10 rim with 3.75BS

if your trying to get a look like Shane's i.e wannabe he technically has 15x10's but you have to remember he has fender flares and depends on the backspacing. For trucks without fender flares my favorite is 15x8 with 3.625 backspacing which sticks out an inch or 2 like on mine and patricks i.e 01 ranger4x4

and for if you stay stock height, on your 2wd 31 is going to be about the max.

edit: and for that tire, your going to want to run 8 inch wide rim, perferibly 15x8. But some people like the look of more rim, but for me and up to 33 inch tire, I like 15's the best.

On a 33x12.50 your going to want a 10 inch wide rim, any thing narrower your going to get a balloon effect with the tire. on a 31X10.5 you will need a 8 inch wide rim, it will not seat right or look right with a 10 inch wide rim. With just a T-bar crank you can go up to 32X10.5 or you can crank the hell out of them to get on to 33's with a body lift you can crank the t-bars pretty good and get on to 35's if you wanted but you will rub, unless you trim it up some.

I cant make up my mind... I don't think i'm going to do the body lift now because theres to many things I don't like about it but i need a new set of tires anyway. I already have my T-Bars mildly cranked (not in pic). my problem is I think the 31's look a little small and to stock for me but they dont make the tires I want (goodyear duratrac or authority) in 32in... And to go to a Metric size i would need to go up to a 16 in rim.

What you guys think I should go with?

oh and my truck is 4x4
