Ok I have a 2001 Taco 4x4, it came stock with 15" rims and I think 235 tires.
I put 31x10.50 BFG on it but I want a set of wheels. I was thinking of the wheelers 15x8, I dont have a lift or anything I just want my tires to stick out some. Im gonna keep the 31x10.50 so should I go with the type A or type B?

Is there any others that will fit that are around the same price?

Also ive read some threads about the backspacing, The way I understand if the wheels stick out too far it causes wear and tear on your idler arms, ball joints, and such. What would be a safe backspacing? Im not gonna be off-roading much.

the type b's will stick out more than the type a's if that's what you are wanting.

What is the exact backspacing on the type A and B. I suppose B is 3.75 so what would the type A be. I want them to stick out but not REAL far. Anyone runnin these , if so lets see a few pics.

A is probably 4.5". Just shoot them an email. They are great people to deal with.

I run type B. I don't have a good pic of how far they stick out though, it's more of a side shot. They are slightly out from the stock flares, but not much. The type Bs are now 4in I think, with the type As being 4.5 (stock). If I think about it I'll get a pic this afternoon.
