depends on the backspacing of the rims.

Shot in the dark but I'd say an 8" wheel with 3.75" backspacing will stick out 1" more than a 7" wheel with the same back space... I never was good at math though. :shrug:

Throw a 1" wheel spacer on your truck for close to the same effect... just to get an idea of what it will look like anyway.

SoCal, what size tire are you planning on running? Anything 10.50 and narrower will look like crap on a 15x8. In my opinion even 32 x 11.50s are too narrow for an 8" rim, the wheel ends up buldging the sidewall of the tire out which is not only fugly but also makes you more likely to damage the lip of the wheel against a rock, curb etc.

If you're worried about the wheel sticking out so much, go with a 15x7 dude. :waytogo:

hey 31x10.5 on 15x8's isnt fugly:thinking:. that's what i'm running on my 00 although i would like to get some 15x7's due to the new suspension up front. Pat is right though the rubber isnt as far out there so you can bang the lip of the rim on med. to tall curbs.
