16x8s

Anyone run a 16x8 I found a set of 16x8 with a -6mm offset. I like them a lot but I don't know how much they will stick out and I want them to stick out about an inch. Anyone run something even close?

BTW its a 4.25 backspacing so whats the deal

My 16's have the specs you're asking about. I have 315's on them but I don't think the rims stick out an inch. I'd say the tires stick out @ 2" though....

I don't have any pics of my truck with these 16's. I'll have to take some tomorrow since it's 10 degrees and there's 6" of snow on the ground As for the wheels you're getting, I'm not a big fan of black and machined so I'd have to pick chrome

Sam Chrome is easy to clean.

Mine are 16X8 procomp wheels not sure of the back space and offset though.

I wouldn't want them outside the fenders any more either they already sling shiznit all down the side of the truck.

Don't personally like the chrome Sam, but they would probably look good on a white truck

Dagum that machined is a lot cheaper though lol.

Discount tires has a 30 day deal I might just have to wait and save up a bit more money and get what I really want and thats the chrome.

but i like the machined to
