Question Agressive Stance?

I want to keep my stock rims but i also want the tires to stick out a couple inches from the body and have a nice aggressive stance? is this possible? what size tires would i need in order to achieve this stance? thanks for any input guys.. I'm a noob when it come to tires and rims. would i need wheel spacers or could i simply mount a wider tire?

A wider tire wont do much for you.. a wheel with a higher negative offset will do it.

For example: -12=close to stock
-40 sticks out a couple inches past the wheel well. I just used some numbers I remembered when wheel shopping..

As far as spacers, a 2 inch spacer should give you what you want but be sure to go with a steel spacer and not aluminum. Theyre not exactly cheap either..

Check the swap meet section, there's usually someone on there looking to trade plus a little cash..

I say if you have to spend 200 on spacers just spend 250 more and get rims. Jmo

I wouldnt like the idea of 2" spacers but i will have heavy loads on my truck. That would be the point that i would nervous about them.

Since this is kinda on the subject of the thread...has anyone had good/bad experience with a spacer like this?

2" spacers did just what I wanted with 08 20's on my 99.
Keep in mind the 08 rims are zero offset.

I've got a crew cab short box with 17" weld racing wheels. And a -40(?) Offset. Look pretty good IMO.

Well, most aftermarket rims don't really look that great.
IMHO...
