yes that would be very close to the stock wheel size...

but you might want a little less backspaceing so they stick out a little more, or if you get a spindle lift tho

i would go no mare the 4 inch BS, 4.5 will set the wheel in to far and may look funny, plus maybe the tires will rub?

Seems crazy to use a spacer when you can order the correct size to begin with.

Finally found it! ( 56k might not liek this )

djayenos
it's a 2wd so this is mostly for the off road look... however i do plan on off roading it alittle bit. but most of the time you only go to 15x8 when you step up to 33's " or i do" i had 33's on my jeep and ran 15x8's
but anyway....should this set up i ordered work?

Beleive me you will want the offset that i wrote, the 4.5 will suck it in to much and if you want to put a different lift on it wont work.

Yeah thats the best backspacing you can have cause if you go much different from the factory you start risking serious damage to the wheel bearings. Thats one reason why on a Ranger 90% of wheel places will tell you to get a 15X8 instead of a 15X10 cause if you stick them to far out you have to repack the bearings every few thousand miles or else you will eat them away...
