    wat?
    depends on how wide of a tire you want to run. 5" will work w/ a 265...4.5" for 285

    I am going to have to trim with a 4.5 backspace. so no matter what your pretty much going to have to trim if you go over a 33" tire so just ask the guy with the silver truck for some advice on which ones he got then go from there.
