It (as well as a 6th gen) can be voted as one if it's lifted like a 4x4, sitting on 26" wheels, with a paint scheme like a rolling skittles, m&m's, Lowe's, mighty mouse or jolly rancher billboard!







On the opposite, a Box can look just as clean as a 6th Gen... if kept tastefully clean. BUT... different strokes for different folks! To each his/her own. No two people are the same.




Have a nice day!

285/40/18 on an 18x10" with a 5.5" backspace, and it tucks.

Default What's the widest 15" wheel/tire I can fit

Many confuse backspace,and offset. Offset is always referencing the wheel centerline either +,or- Backspacing is the distance from the inside bead to the mounting flange. The example given of a 15x10 with 5" backspace would have a "zero" offset. The mounting flange is in the center of the wheel. If there's a choice between slightly different backspace,go with the smaller. You will always be able to move tire/wheel out with a spacer,but you can't bring it in if it's out a little to far.

Don't you mean "go with the larger" backspacing?

The greater the backspacing,the further in the tire/rim will be. As I mentioned before,the tire/wheel can be moved out with spacers. Most steel wheels are neutral,or close to it. I did fit a 275/60 on a 15x10,and I suspect a 295/50 would have fit also. Long story short, I meant greater. This is one reason I dislike using backspacing figures,I find offset specs much easier to use.
