last post regaurding tires i swear

mickey thompson classic II's for 99 each...worth it? the backspacing is 3 and 5/8" and the demensions are 15 x 10

will that rim fit BFG all terrains 32" x 11.4

and will this set up stick past the stock fender flares?

please help...im thinking about buying them in two months

Yes, they will stick out past the fender flare. You would be better off with a 15x8 wheel for 32's (and even 33's).

the 15x8 rims have a 3 and 5/16" back space to them...and a differnet wheel package deal that would be cheaper and has a 3.25" backspace to em so thats even worse right?
...looks like the classic II with 3 5/8" backspace will be my best bet... how far we talking? an inch? 1 3/16" sticking out? i might be able to get away with it right? any reason why 15 x 8 would be better? i think i read somewhere that the 15 x 10 could work too...is there drawbacks of having th wider rim?

a wider rim will break a bead easier when aired down. The wider the rim it doesnt let the tire flex and move as much as a narrower rim. call MT and ask them about the backsapcing because i remember seeing them somewhere with 4 inchs of backspacing. maybe you have to special order the backspacing that you want and not all companies can get it.

Yeah its sucks when you blow a bead, huh Bill

I have 15X10 and I wish I bought 15X8. Actaully now that I', getting close to what I've wanted it worked out for the better, I want 12.50 or 13.50 wide tires next. But for you, I'd say get a 15X8 with 4-4.5' BS.

BTW, get the mud tires

You can find 32" tires with a 16" rim, but they always cost more. Your best bet would be to find a diffrent rim that you like. Here is where I bought mine from.
