    Quick wheel/tire question

    Ok just considering my options for after I'm done with the lift. I know I can clear 265/75R16s if I'm using stock gm full size wheels. But what if I want to run a steel off road wheel like a crager soft 8 that has a 4.5" backspace? I know it goes down to a 3" backspace with the adaptors.
