    What do you mean they stick way out? They stick out of the fenders when they're on your truck?

    Then you have little, no, or negative offset on them. Theres nothing wrong with them, other than them looking terrible. They can also put excessive wear on your wheel bearings.

    As long as you keep proper maintance with them you'll be alright. It shouldn't be any worse than a 4x4 with big, wide tires sticking out. Is it 2wd or 4? Why are you gonna stay with the 15's?

    Thats why. You've got 2wd rims on a 4wd truck. And acutally, my 18's with tires are 2" smaller than my stock 15's. But hella more expensive.

    A 4x4 rim has more offset, or backspacing. It needs around 6" of backspacing. You don't have enough backspacing, thats why they stick out. Most guys at a rim shop don't know shit. Especially when it comes to trucks. My rims cost around 2k with tires.

    Well first off, the pictures a little off, its not straight. I cropped it straight in photoshop. It makes the rear end look lower than it is. Anyways, teh front is dropped about 6",bottoms out all the time and rides terrible, and the rear is dropped 3" with belltech leafs. I bought a shaved door handle kit with alarm from Autoloc. One button on my keychain openes the drivers door, one does the passenger side, one does the alarm. I left the handle on the tailgate, so If my battery goes dead or something goes wrong, I can still get in by using my key to open the tailgate glass and climbing in though there. So I push a button, and the door pops open. There's also a spring type popper I installed at the bottom of the door to actually make the door open out, the handle kit just pulls the latch. The spring makes it pop out.
