3.23 BS??? that is really really wide, and in the long run will hurt your ball joints and bearings. I woulnd't go any less than 3.75, thats what I have. At 3.75 the tires will stick out past the flares. If your cops don't care and you can pass inspection, then don't worry about it, but chances are you will not pass inspection. I used to switch my stock rims on for inspection, then the cops started pulling me over. I ended up with Bushwackers and I love them.

im ahving a hell of a time finding package deals were a 32" tire can fit on a rim with 3.75-4.00 backspacing...i like the mickey thompson classic II and the A/E 589's but 15"x8" seems to be the standard for fititng 32"....or can i get away ording a different sizd rim like a a 15x11 and still et the 32" in them?
