How could I make these tires fit?

I found these!!!

http://hartford.craigslist.org/pts/1002506333.html

250$ for four mud tires and they're the size I want! but their on 6 lug rims, we have 5 lug right? Also their 15" and are'n't our rims 16"? Would I need to buy some rims and where can I get some cheap ones and around how much for 4? Are there adapters? I think I have read that somewhere?

Nothing, those will fit stock, you will need new rims though. 5x4.5 is our bolt pattern.

buy some 5x4.5 15" rims and get the tires mounted on there, then resell the 6 luggers

lifted mazda 01 did this when he bought his buckshots they came on f150 rims and he bought some cragars and got em remounted on there

ya dude....get those tires. that's a pretty dang good deal if there's still alot of tread left on 'em.

you cannot mount 15" tires to 16" wheels. i can't believe i just typed that...but...yeah.

you should get some cheap stealies or get some used alloys or something. your current wheels are 16" aluminums. set of 4 steelies should be about 200-250 a set. I got the set in the pic below for a whopping 125 off craigslist.



for kicks and giggles...here's my truck back in the day with the same size and same brand tires w/ only cranked bars on black steelies...32x11.50R15 BFG mud terrains and 15x8 D-hole daytonas...

Those tires will fit. Get some 15" Ranger or Mazda rims for cheap from a wreckers or something.

For a guy that spent all his money buying the truck and not having any money to fix the clutch,you sure have a lot of money to throw around on goodies.

The type of tire doesn't really effect mileage...it's the size.

I saw the best MPG numbers using those 32's. regularly pulling 18-19 on average.

You could always do black chrome and have the best of both worlds.

Lol I know man, I am going on paycheck to paycheck, I get paid every two weeks so I just got 330, and next paycheck is 400, and after that I am pretty much done since I go back to school next week and make like 100 a week if that. But I am obsessed with my truck now, maybe just a stage I'm going through since I just got it. But the mods so far were cheap, $12 decal, $75 muffler, $45 LED bar and thats it so far. I am deciding wht to do next, I think it is crank the tbars and get a lifetime alignment + camber kit, will run me around $200 I think. Either that or a 3" bl, or the tires I found, but that will be the most expensive option.
Update on the repair, the guy I bought it from gave me $250 back towards the repair, I wanted him to pay half but 250 is better than nothing.

No! That was stated already. You need 5 x 4.5 bolt pattern or get a set of spacers.

you won't notice the difference in mpg. steel wheels weigh the most. anyway if u plan to lift it in the future u shouldn't worry about MPG...that was my case and now i don't even care haha

just go to a junk yard and trade your wheels for stock 15s that are in good shape if u want 15s. i can do that at the yard near me but i dont know bout u
but if u want bigger tires you'll prob want at least an 8 inch wide wheel if lets say u want a 33. stock is 7" wide
