The new wheels have 5.5" backspacing and the factory ones have 6" so the extra width is on the outside of the new wheel. Also, I was kinda surprised to "feel" that the new wheels were actually lighter than the factory ones by just a bit.



10" wide vs 7" wide


The 31"-10.50 BFG all-terrains rub slightly when turning while hitting a bump (why are we all not surprised, lol) A Saturday and a good fender trim job will cure that though. Then I can do some off-roading again!

They are 31x10.50s. The wider wheels really make them stand out more. I can also say that the truck "feels" more stable around corners now... I wasn't even thinking about that when I put the wider wheels on. Nice bonus!
