wheel spacers are usually the thibg that people use. be careful however, they put added strain on your lugs. as my brother can tell you. his wheel fell off, but it WAS a chebby

More Backspacing = Further your tires/wheels stick out. Its basically the deeper your wheels are the more backspacing there is. Understand?

Get you some 10" wide "Rock Crawlers" with 2.75" backspacing and some tires 11.50 or wider. Then stay the fawk out of Jersey or Washington State or you will be ticket bait.

California too. Unless you have fender flares that stick out as wide as the tire.
