Exclamation advice please!

Whats the best and safest way to make stock wheels and tires stick out?
I dont think ill be changing the wheels or going for bigger tires and im currently running 235/75 tires on 15 inch stock rims. i like how they look but i just want them to stick out a little bit more. SUGGESTIONS PLEASE!?

You'd need to change the backspacing and offset of the wheels.. make sure your state's fender flare laws allow you to "uncover" your tire tread though else you could get dinged for it

Yep, you need to first find out if it's legal in your state... then either buy different wheels with less backspace or add spacers. Check the legality of spacers as well.... What you'd need are technically "adapters" so that may keep you legal if it's an issue...
