I was wondering what an 8 inch rim would look like on my 06'. Would I have to worry about backspace issues or what. I have a 285/75/16 MT Claw on it right now with the T-Bars cranked a little. If anyone has any pics I would appreciate it,thanks.

I would consider leveling it.....and it will def. require some minor trimming of the front lower valance.

You should be ok, as long as the offset is positive. Might have to trim the front valence a little, but that's probably it. If you get a negative offset, then you'll probably start running into problems.

I have an 8" rim on mine, 285/75/16 Toyo Open Country AT and no rubbing. It was trimmed a bit before I got it but it wasn't leveled either. Where I got rubbing was the back of the inner wheel well. It would rub the plastic liner retainer head off. I put a short bolt and lock nut on it which pulled in the liner a bit and it never rubbed after.

Now it's leveled but I used the stock keys to do it. I think the BS was -5 but i can't remember for certain. Eagle Alloy 186.
