    i have looked and looked trying to find (1) with a 4.5 backspacing rim, how far will the tires stick out? pics would greatly help. (2) with no lift and rims with a 4.5 backspacing, what is the biggest tire i can run since i can clear the UCA's now? (3) with getting all this, should i UCA's or will my allignment not be affected too much? please help

    1) depends on the tire width
    2) need to know rim diameter
    3) If you are getting a full 3" lift, UCA's are recommended

    Need more info dude

    Whoa buddy....can't you wait a little longer than 8 minutes? Can't really "bump" a thread when it's still at the top of the forum.


    Also, Ben asked you for the tire size.

    You won't need new UCA's unless you go up to 3" of lift.

    This is one of my older pictures but I am running 285/65-18"s with 18x9" wheels and a -12mm offset which equals out to a 4.5" backspace. Tires stick out about 1 inch past the wheel wells.;)

    265 is your width. That is about a 10.5" (10.43) wide tire. A 275 is 10.83" and a 285 is 11.22" wide. Most memebers that lift run a 285. Your 17x8 will be fine for the 285, as well as the skinnier sizes. Your max height will be between 32-33". That's a 285/70 17 tire. With the wheel dimensions you described, you should be fine to run with 3" of lift. Use the below link to compare different sizes.

    thanks for the replies, but i dont plan to lift any time soon. what backspacing should i run since 4.5 only sticks out about an inch? i want near 2 inches. and with a setup near that, i can run a 32x11.50??

    265/75 16 will be as high as you can go without lift. If you want 2" of wheel/tire sticking out of the well, it won't happen with the 265's

    You should be able to do a 275/70 16 with out issue. (If they make such a tire size)
