This is a 15x8 with 4.5 of backspacing (will look the same from the front/back as the 16x8s shown)



The back stays pretty much within the fender, but the back sticks out a good 2 in wider. I'll snap a better pic if you want it, but you can kinda see how much it sticks out. (also note the worn tires..new ones are in the mail )

It's going to depend on backspacing. You're going to want to stay as close to the stock 6" as possible. Plus the stockers are 7" wide, and you're looking at 8-9" wide rims there.

Their site even shows a drop down menu that lists '2WD S10 pickup trucks' and they have 4.5" of backspacing.

Couldn't find any on eBay in any diameter with anything but 4.5" BS.

I think half the width youre increasing over stock it sticks out. So the 4.5' BS on a 15x8 for me makes it stick out 2' more than stock did (1.5' wider from BS, .5' wider from rim).

Here's some better pics of the stance:

Front Tire, view 1:


Front Tire view 2:

Back tire:



Edit: Low-pros might make the stance look wider actually...where my tires round at the treads, a low pro would be more sharply edged right? Just thinking out loud! or wait..would it look slimmer, because there wouldn't be the rounding effect from the rim to the tread!!?!

Just that you're going from a 7" wide stock rim to an 8-9" wide aftermarket rim which will make your choices even slimmer if you want to stay within the fenderwell.

Toyo Open Country A/Ts in 265/70/15

Went with those 'cause they have a 50k mile warranty, but still the A/T I was looking for!
