Just in case you anyone was wondering you can fit a 15x10 on stock suspension. I used a 205/65 tire and stretched it and it fits with no rubbing even at full lock.

What's the backspacing?

And if you don't mind me asking, why did you go with such a narrow tire? Or is that the "look" no adays? I'm old lol...

Doing things wrong, until I get it right.
why did you go with such a narrow tire?
They call it "stretch". the mini truck guys have been doing this since the early 90's.
These are reversed 15x10's with the tires "stretched"

Hey no judgement. I only complain about style based things when they are obviously detrimental to the vehicle actually performing properly. Having the tire stretched outward is no different than having the tires pinched inward on huge off-road tires so I see no issue except the obvious issue of never getting near a curb. :ROFLMAO:

I think it looks pretty cool.

I asked because I wanna do 15x10 on the back of my truck one day but worried if there's room.

I have no problem I even had my buddy jump on the back to see if it would touch anywhere and they don't I even went full lock on front and pushed down to replicate a steep driveway or something and they don't hit and also my passenger side mirror is angled so I can see how close to the curb the wheel is ;missingteeth;

On the rear, how much room do you have between the leaf spring? Is there room for tires that aren't "stretched"?

Keep your mind like an umbrella, it only works if its open... Continually learning.

I work in fuel tanks for a living. Don't judge me!
I know the stretched look was a thing in Arizona. The OP isn't as bad as some I've seen. To each their own. I'm sure there are people that don't like what I've done with my truck. So, there is that.

I ran a mexi-fitment for awhile on my old 2010.

I didn't buy these... friend had them sitting beside his garage so I "stole" them and ran them for shts and giggles

My 2 bits here: Incorrect width combination of tire and wheel shouldn't be condoned on the site.
And yes it doesn't matter if it is 33x12.5R15 on 6" rims or 205/65R15s on 10" rims, both cases are incorrect and not safe. Just like overloading your truck/towing too much trailer just because someone has "done it for years" doesn't make it right.​

Yes, I'm a party pooper today.

p.s. Those running 32x11.5R15s knew 10" rims work - they're an approved rim for that tire.
