Newbie here and I've searched for an answer but really have gotten different info so here it goes:
2001 scab 4x4 stock/ no lift - looking for a new tire and wheel combo that will get me the largest size tire. I want a wide profile tire and one that fills up the wheel well nicely. I'm not that knowledgable about backspacing, etc. so I'd appreciate any and all help.
You want a 10 inch wide wheel with 4.5 inches of backspacing and a 33x12.50 tire. You will have to trim a little plastic off the front bumper's lower valance for clearance. Whether you want a 16 or 22 inch diameter wheel is strictly a matter of personal preference. I have pics in my gallary at stock height with 33's on 16x10's.
2005 Expy, 305/45-22 Falkens on 22x9.5 Eagle 026s.
2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, 2" lift, 33" BFG AT KO's on 17x9 Eagle 197s.
2012 Ram 2500 crewcab diesel. 5" RCX lift, 355/60-20 Nitto Terra Grapplers on 20x9 KMC XD Spys.
while i'd prefer 18's for looks, i have 16x10's and 305/70 bfgs...absolutely love them for everything when it comes to driving. i've actually taken my torsion bars back down to a stockish hight and still never rub. i only have a couple pics but there are a few in my gallery.
i'm waiting on some 285's and 17x9's right now but i think the 305 on a 16 is a nice look for the 97-03's.
Looks like I'll go with a 33x12.5 tire..probably some BFG AT/KO as I always liked there performance on and off road.
So, anyone have a good online source for wheels? I've checked all the popular sites and haven't found a good selection of 16x10 wheels in a 5-135 bolt pattern.
Also, I was hunting around looking to possibly purchase a tire/wheel combo all mounted and balanced and delivered to your door. Is there some kind of trick on these sites to ordering this in the size wheel and tire I want? Whenever I put my truck into the info it is requesting, (on tirerack for example) it really limits your search to stock type wheels and tires. Can I place a special order online somehow?..or anywhere for that matter?
