Question 3.75 BS on 32X11.5" rims?

Hey guys. Sorry if this has been covered and I did a search, but couldn't find exactly what I needed.

I'm lifting my 99 Taco Prerunner this month. 3" lift in the front and rear should do the job.

At my friends house today, I took the rims off of his Blazer and stood them against my truck after putting a jack under the front and lifting it 3". He has the Pro-Comp Xtreme Alloys, 15X8" rim with 32X11.5 Dunlop MT on it and it looked awesome.

I decided to get those rims over the centerlines with 32" instead of 33" tires. They filled up the well pretty good and I think 33's would be overboard on a 3" lift.

Anyways, the Xtreme Alloys only come in a 3.75 BS for a 15X8" rim. What I am looking for is the tire to stick out from the fender a bit. Will a 3.75" BS do the job? What would be even better is if someone could shoot me a picture of thier truck with the size tires I want, and any rim with the same backspacing.

My main question is, is will 3.75" BS make the tire stick out from the truck a bit? This is what I want and if it does, I'd rather go with these rims since they are cheap and look awesome.

BTW, I should clear these rims as the stock rims on my Prerunn Taco are 15" rim, so I shouldn't hit the caliper.

Thanks guys.

The less backspacing, the farther the tire sticks out. That should be a good combo. Also, make sure they do clear the calipers cause it sucks if they dont!!

Awesome. Looks like I'll be going with those rims.

Even though my rims are 15" and its a pre 01, the calipers can still rub?

Thanks yota. Do the tires stick out about half a lug? It looks like it does. You even have the TRD fenders and I have the little chrome strip so Mine may stick out a lug. Definately looks like I'll be going with the Pro Comp Xtremes!

Thanks Zack and Yota. You guys made my decision a lot easier to make, and believe me, it's been a hard one. Floppin back and forth, 33, hmmm, 32, 33, wait, these rims, those rims, ahhhhh, too many to choose from!
