Those are MY rims!! I don't have as much "dish" mine is more centered for lack of technical terms. Good choice! They are inexpensive and look great! How much did you pay for those wheels? I think I paid $80 or $85 each. I even have a 5th fullsize matching spare!
Good luck with the build. Let me know if you have any questions. I see that you are thinking about the Explorer 8.8. Do you already have one lined up? If not you may want to consider an F-150 9.75 axle. Full width works great with the Dixon front end and you get 34-spline axles rather than 31-spline. Speed sensor and drive shaft flange are plug and play. You may need to check your new wheels for rotor clearance since the 9.75 axle uses 13" rotors. The main hurdle with this axle is that it uses an F-150 bolt pattern. I had my axles and rotors redrilled to 5 on 4.5 (cost me around $175).
2000 4X4 Ranger, F-150 9.75 w/ 4:88's, Dixon Brothers Racing Long Travel Kit, Giant 64 Kit Long Travel Leaf Spring Kit, 35X12.50 BFG All Terrain KO, Custom front bumper w/ LightForce HID's, Rocky Road Outfitter's Super Sliders, Cobra CB & Alpine head unit.
So 15x8? Is the bare alum part clear coated? If it's not that would look badass polished!
polished? it feels like its got clear on it, but its just got a raw/machined alum. look to it.

yeah, tucked in isnt a factor since my suspension is all about pushing out. I wanted to make sure when i get glass I dont have to factor in the extra rim/tire width.
got the rims/tires mounted so thats out of the way. I threw them on just for the hell of it. They look goofy from the front and back cause they are pretty tucked in, but will look good with the kit on.
