    Got my new Summit 84D series wheels on today. Had to shave a little and put a 1/8 spacer up front but they look awesome! Putting in my fog lights monday morning, so that my next project. What does everybody think about the wheels?

    How many threads do you have engaged in the lug nuts with the spacers? Plate spacers scare me.

    I counted 8 and a half full threads. I only have 1/8 inch spacers up front though. I'm just going to keep checking it regularly until I get some longer studs put on.

    Reminds me of my old wheel/tire combo. Pretty well identical other than the sick cragar red/blue stripes

    It's not the tire, more the wheel. 3.75 is perfect backspace IMO on 1st gens.

    Yes I am 2nd gen. The 3.75 back spacing looks much better than the stock steelies. The 235s on stock rims and the fat bobs lift made the tires look sort of sunken in, but these wheels fixed that. Discount tire did tell me that 3.75 is perfect for our trucks.

    Nice, good info OP. ill make sure to choose such rim size when my current tires run out.
    So, you have to put those 1/8 wheel spacers on in order for the rims to not rub...?
    And how would the ride be, if i dont get the lift but just such tires and rims?
    Would it be pretty much like the stock?

    Edit: how would the 15x8 with 3.75backspace look like?
    And what does the offset affect?

    Thanks guys, here is a side shot.

    Yeah I had to put the spacers on so they could clear the brake caliper bracket... I think the ride would be almost the same as stock except a wider base, but the wheels I have are just slightly heavier than the stock wheels. It would probably look really good though.
