Default Negative offset

For the longest time i had it in my head i could put longer radius arms and what not on my truck to give it a prerunner look then all of a sudden it hit me my trucks four wheel drive and it wouldnt work

SOOOOOO i am looking for a 15 or 16 inch wheel with a whole bunch of negative off set to run a wider and larger tire and get a "wider look" does anyone have a website or brand with a wheel that can do this for me

why do you want to do this. Make your truck a PR and then you can have that look. If you are keeping it stock then please dont.

just go to rim websites or off road websites and look for anything with 3.75 or lower backspace. I know summit racing has a nice feature where you can limit your results to whatever size width bolt pattern offset and backspacing rim you want.

On my Cherokee I had a dilemma like this (had a 68" wide rear axle, and a 62" wide front).

I got reverse cut black steelies from 4wheel parts (15x10) for $50/each. They are literally reverse cut and you'll need a 6" extension to put the lug nuts on due to the depth (in my case, 15x10).

It evened it out just fine, just remember your now leveraging against the bearings significantly harder than before because you have that offset like a wrench twisting on it. It only took me one set of trasher Timken bearings to learn.
