No, the less backspacing you have the more the tire/wheel will stick out. A identical width wheel with 4 5/8 inches of backspacing will stick out less than one with 4 1/2 inches.

Exclamation gotcha

thanks wandell, what is your recommendation of a wheel and tire combo that would give the qwide look im going for? do you think 325/60r18 grappler on eagle 102 18x9.5 with 4 5/8 backspacing would do it? thanks

Eagle Alloy makes a 17x12 inch wide wheel (model 064) for your truck with 3.625 inches of backspacing. You could use it with a 325/70-17 (34x13.00) Nitto Terra Grappler. That should give you the look you want, with the tires sticking out of the wheelwells. The question is how much lift you will need because to the wide wheel. A 6 inch lift may clear it. Eagle's website is www.americaneaglewheel.com
