    Im looking to buy a set of mickey thompson bullet holes but was wondering if 3 5/16 backspace was gonna stick out way to far. Pictures would be great.

    They will stick out over 2 inches further than stock. Stock backspacing is 5.5".

    Most people on here with aftermarket rims run about 4.5" BS.

    based on your screen name, im assuming your truck is a 1st gen...

    if so, stock backspace is 4.5"

    4" is just right for 33s

    as for the Mickeys, you sure it's not 3 5/8" backspace?

    3 5/8" or even 3 5/16" will stick out past the fenders quite a bit

    actually, hard to tell...

    his truck info says dual 40s... 1st gens only run single...

    he COULD be a 2nd gen owner now...

    hahah

    either way, 3 5/16" is going to stick out lowrider style on either gen truck...

    yah, typically, 15s are going to be 3 5/8" or 3.75" backspace...

    some of the newer style 15s will be at 4" backspace...
