I just got off the phone with Paul at RCD. However, let me rewind....
Last week I stopped by Big-O tires to find out how much it'd run me to get the AR Mojave Teflons in 15x8. They placed a call into wherever they call and I was told that due to the -19mm offset those rims have they will not work on the OEM spindles of a 4x4 ranger. They suggested I get the Baja rim instead. Now, aside from the alcoas I'd REALLY like to get away from a polished/chrome rim and over to a black or dark gray rim, thus the teflon desire and as such I also looked at American Racing's chamber rim but it too has a -19mm offset
So why am I posting this. Well, just got off the phone with RCD (like I said). Even though their instructions specify a maximum BS of 4 inches, the kit can be run no problem with the alcoas 4.5inch backspacing. Paul mentioned DesertSpive's (Sean on ORR) truck and that they'd had no issues with the 4.5inch backspacing. What this equates to for me is that I get to keep my forged aluminum rims and not have to shell out money for new rims. On the down side though, I keep a 15x7 with 4.5inch backspacing rim when I was hoping to go with a 15x8 and a 3.5-3.75inch backspacing for a little added stance. That said, regarding offset, what's the deal? Can anyone elaborate? Should this post be in wheels and tires? LOL
On a separate note, Big04Ranger's rear 4.88s and front diff geared to 4.88 arrived today.
And hopefully I get my truck back today from the body shop regarding the accident mod of Nov 06.
