Magnumpi, any rubbing issues that could be cured by less backspacing? I'm trying to figure out the best wheel dimensions on leaf spring trucks to keep all your steering on stock or up to 2" leveled front ends. Factory wheel is a 16x7 with 4" bs I think...If you stick close to the 4" bs it seems like you would always be fine unless you went over about 10" wide, which would then be borderline too much -offset for a daily driver. Someone correct me if I'm wrong with whatever combo you successfully run on tires no bigger 34" and no cutting fenders

33x12.50 tires on 8"-10" wide wheels with 4.5" backspacing is the magic size for stock 99-04's. With a leveling kit, lots of people say they can fit 35s, but my truck seems to be a bit of an anomaly in that there's no way in hell that I can fit 35's under it without rubbing. I have a 2" leveling kit, and yet I rub every once in a with 295's on stock wheels! 4" backspacing should work with any 8" wide wheel, but you'll definitely rub the inner wheel well with larger than stock tires.
