The bolt pattern is right... but those are only 5" wide. I'd keep looking!

The guy contacted me back and said that they are actually 15x7. Will it work?

Those do NOT look like they are 15x7. A 235/75 wouldn't bulge that much if they were. I'd believe it if he said 15x6.

However, to answer the question, yes, they would work. They will just look a little more pushed in than our stock wheels and tires already are..

i got the same truck pretty much, mine are 15x8 with a 235/75 BFG on it. I got mine from discounttire for like $850 brand new rims and tires mounted no tax or shipping. i think 7 would be too skinny but thats my opinion.

right out of the box, still needed to be cleaned a little more

from a distance.

I'd rather not spend too much on rims and tires right now. I feel my transmission slipping so, I may need the extra cash for a possible future rebuild. I do however am in need of new tires; rear tires bald. I do plan on getting DuraTracs but, if I could find a good deal on a rim/tire set, I would buy it. Thanks for your help all. I truly appreciate it. Nice rims and tires BTW STLRanger. Same exact set I would get.
