wheels/tires

Am looking at the same issue kind of. I have an 85' x-cab, on 31x10.50 now and I think the rims are 7''. Anyhow I want to run 32x11.50 next time, if I can. Stock height. I am looking at buying 15x8s but unsure of backspacing, I want to run, I thought 3.75 bs was stock on these yotas? Am I wrong? So a 2.5'' Backspacing will put the tires out further? and more strain on bearings correct, maybe 3.75'' stock will be fine with 1'' tall tire

The 32" will fit on the 7s, and keep your track narrow.
( unless you're getting the 8s for style reasons

really a 7'' will fit the 11.50 ? not according to websites of the tires websites, maybe I could try it. I just want 15x8s for new wheels and an uprgrade when I go bigger over time.

Can anyone else help me with backspacing on this rig?

The websites are for maximum road life. for off-road,
there is a margin that can be used. if you are replacing
rims anyway, get the 8s, they will be better down the road.
