Its a 95 2 door 5 speed, D30/D44 locked front and rear. The D44 was just geared to 4.56 and the front will be done soon. I think 3 inchs and 33s is the way to go.

Yea I was thiking about doing 35s for ground clearance but 33s will allow me to not trim the **** out of my fenders and Ill still be able to fit flares back on.

How much backspace? I have a 3" lift and planning on 33" but not sure how much backspace is needed. Will be buying the wheels soon.

Thanks..

I went with 3.75. I would go with a min. of 4 inchs but preferably 3.75 or 3.50 but I like it kinda on the wider side.

Don't mean to thread jack, just didn't want to post the same question...

Wonder if with 3.75, if the tires will stick out too much past the flare.

At the same time, I don't know how much would be need to not hit the control arm.

Pls chime in...

My tires dont stick out that far from my fenders. Does Florida have tire coverage laws? I personally like mine sticking out far.

Not sure about the tire coverage law. I'll look check the state website today. What's the benefit between 3.75 and 4.00?

Your tires will stick out .25'' more which will give it a tiny amount more stability when off camber.
