wheels with more backspace will stick out more. check out my pics, the chrome wheels are american racing ventura 15x7 with 3.75 inch of backspacing and the black ones are cragar soft 8s 15x8 with 4inches of back spacing, just so you have an idea.

just for clarification: OEM rims are 15x7 (round by wide) 5x4.75 (lugs x diameter of patern) with 4.5" of BS correct? So wouldn't 3.75" be less than OEM?

4wd rims have ~6" of BS. 3.75" would be much less than factory.

6" BS good lord! So in order to stuff bigger tires under your vehicle, it would be best to stick with OEM to lessen steering rub issues?
