4.25 Backspace

Hey y'all I have an 08 Sr5 DC 4x4. Im looking at wheels and want to stick with 16s.

I really like the Incubus 16x8 and saw some on here in an old thread.

What I really want to know is how much further than stock a 16x8 with 4.25 BS will stick out the sides?

I like that aggressive "bowed" stance, not ridiculously offset but a little wider than stock. Just wondering if anyone had some maybe pics that I could compare with?

I plan on sticking with the 265/75s for now but can see myself lifting to run 285's in the not so distant future..

This^^^ I was trying to find 16x8 wheels with 5 in backspacing to run 285/75/16s because it is the recommended size for my Icon kit. I think stock wheels are 7 in wide, not 100% on the BS 4.5-5 is damn close though. So with less backspacing, they should stick out 1/2 an inch ish more than stock. Plus 285s are wider then 265s by a little as well so they will stick out just a bit more then the 265s do. If I had to guess, Id say with 285s and a 4.25 backspace, probably 1 1/4 inches wider than stock on each side. If you want more, you could look into wheel spacers...

stockers have 5.5" BS. so these should stick out ~1" more than stock.

They will stick out 2.25" more than stock. 1.25" due to backspacing, and 1" more due to the increased width.

Thanks man, that's the kind of pic I was looking for. I couldnt seem to find a shot straight down at the tire like that. I think I'm gonna go with the 4.25 bs 16s soon.

I thought I wanted to immediately lift it but my truck is pretty capable of handling anything I need with the 265's so we will see...
