    Excuse my ignorance but what's the difference? Im trying to find rims to run some 285/70/17 BFG A/T's and need to know what to look for. I want the LEAST amount of tire sticking out past the fenders.

    Timmer, thanks for the info. Yes on the stock arms. I will be running some pro-comps with 4.750 back spacing.
