Question What's the widest rim that will fit 2000 StepSide ?

I am about to purchase a 00 stepside and i will like to know what is the widest rim/from experience that can fit/even if its right at the edge of a step side bed . I love the staggered bullitt rims on ebay but they are 18X9 and 18X10 ! Is that too much ? I will need the fat rim/tire combo out back as 2jz-gte motor will be going in it ! I want to hopefully run drag radials in the rear .

Anyone have any experience with this yet, if not the stepside then how about the widest on a reglar bed with a 3/4 drop ?

you can put a 10" wheel with 7.5" backspace, as far as I know.

WOW, thanks NXRunner, may i ask what is the offset on your rims ? I thought i could fit more tire under the wheel well but i guess the offset makes a difference also .

I think Modtaco was running 11" WIDE Work wheels. He had wide fenders though. Honestly, you are only limited by what you are willing to do to make them fit.

I'm running
Front (3" drop):
18x8.5 (+40) 245/40
Rear (4" drop):
18x9.5 (+40) 275/35

ComaJoe is running:
Front (3" drop):
18x9 (+45) 245/40
Rear (4" drop):
18x10 (+45) 295/35

In no way will these setups tuck, and I wouldn't want to go any lower. Also neither of us are stepside.
