Would these wheel spacers fit my truck?

Like the title asks. Is this the proper lug pattern?
Before everyone chimes in that they are gonna destroy my front, they are only going on the back to make my front and rear match.

I don't think they'd be hubcentric in your application though... I think the center will be bigger than the Ranger centers. I tried to put my Alcoas on the XJ and they were too small in the center!

I wouldn't need to worry about that though since they are going on the rear. Right?

It doesn't matter front or rear - hubcentric is better. You'll be fine though as long as you're careful when installing to make sure everything is seated correctly when you install it.

Just realized though... those may not work where your wheels fit against the spacer if the center of the Ranger rim is smaller. I'll do some looking as well to see if I can find anyone using them!

That's why I'm not sure that they'll work... everyone that I know of that has used them have aftermarket wheels.

Ok, two options.
1. Buy them, have that lip machined off and coat them for oxidation
2. Anyone have any ideas about NON hubcentric spacers? Preferably 1"-1 1/2".

Do you have a web site or number? Summit just has centric ones and they are pretty expensive. I don't wanna pay $200 for them.

Thanks for the update. That seems like alot of maintenance. I understand you need to check the lugs alot with spacers but adding 3/8" washers seems like a lot of extra parts.

I don't have a jeep. I knew a ranger owner had the ones I posted but he had aftermarket rims. Mine are stock so I dunno if they'll fit.
