Wheel questions

https://www.dropbox.com/s/qlx4fgf0dk..._0602.JPG?dl=0


Does anyone know what the backspace and offset are for these factory wheels?

15X7 steel.

I want to put a set of US Mags U101 Indy's on my 94 Ranger XLT SC 4X4.

Not lifted with 31X10.50-15 Kuhmo Roadventure AT51's

I already have the tires on the steel wheels.
Trying to avoid any clearance issues.

Thanks.

Thanks.

The specs on the wheels I'm looking at are offset -5 backspace 3.75.
So does that mean they will stick out further than the stock wheels, or are they going to be about the same?

It's a bit confusing how the dimensions interact.....

The replacement wheels have negative offset so the midpoint of the wheel will be moved out about 17mm compared to the factory wheel (12mm + 5mm = 17mm). Assuming that the replacement wheel is the same 7" width as stock, that means that the inner and outer rim faces will also be 17mm further out.

Keep in mind that published offset and backspacing specs are often rounded up or down, so the real world dimensions may come out very slightly different from the calculations. Usually not enough to matter though.
