rim width

Will a 15x8 rim make the tires stick out further than a 15x7 rim, might sound like adumb question but if I am running 32 on a 15x7 rim as opposed to a 15x8 rim, i know about the stability and everything, i just want to know if the 15x8 will actually make the tire stick out past the fender more than the 15x7??? any info would be great, thanks

It totaly depends on the backspacing of the rim. The lower you go the more they will stick out. Stock is 4.5" so a 15X8 takes away 1" from that. You would need a 3.5" backspace to have it stick out the same. If you get 3.75 or 4" it will stick out the amount from 3.5" So .25 if it's 3.75 & .50 if it's a 4" backspace.
