lol i'm the opposite. i'll take the gap between the flares and tires. plus i do plan on getting rimms sometime so that means bigger tires less gap. but i figure for now i can do everything my buddies can in their trucks, until i get mine.

i'd go with like 14" wheels so you can have a normal tire size instead of low-pros.
