Depends! Pick your tire size and go from there. I have P325-50x15 Hoosier Quicktime DOT's on my '96 S-10 and they fit fine with the right backspacing. Mine's not lowered though...

I'm running a Ranger 8.8" axle narrowed by cutting one side down (centers the pinion) and using a second axle from the short side. That said, my rims are 15 x 10 with 5.5" backspacing. The best way to be sure is make a cardboard template of the wheel and tire you want to use, and mock it up.
