    SO I just upgraded to 285/75/16, but am thinking of going with a deeper wheel size. I currently have the stock 16x7. I know these are pretty narrow, especially for this tire. What wheel sizes would give this tire a bigger look than the stock 7. I see alot of people on here run 8", but that hardly seems like it would make much a difference. 10 seems like too much, is there a 8.5 or 9? Also what is the bolt pattern on an 01 4x4? What effect does backspacing have, also what does that really mean? Sorry im new to this all....any thoughts? Heres a pic for reference...

    You could go 9 " with a different backspacing...thus pushing your wheel a lil further out to give it a broader stance :)

    Are you running wheel spacers with those 285s?

    Yea 1.5 spacers. I don't know what backspacing means at all....what is the definition. The amount that it sits farther out?
