Back spacing.

Ok here it is, im getting some 15x7in Rock Crawler Series 51. And im a little confused about the back spacing part. I have a 97 ranger super cab 4x4 i dont know if that helps or not. It says 4.5" back spacing or 3.75" back spacing those are the two choices i just dont know which one to get. Thanks.

i guess some people are ballers on a budget

15x7 are the exact same size as u're stock rims...so why buy new ones?

if u're gonna upgrade to aftermarket stuff, go bigger, as later, when u wanna add bigger tires or etc, u're gonna wish u had gotten 8" rims....

The factory size for recent Rangers is either 16x7 or 15x7 with 4.5" BS.

The 4.5" BS will put your 15x7 aftermarket wheels in the same location as stock 15x7's. Using the 3.75" BS will move them out 3/4" farther compared with factory wheels.

HEh to the two above posts. Try 4wheelparts.com if you can handle shipping charges. Otherwise, look around at your local places.

i'm gonna get some rockkrawlers sometime soon...

but the problem here, is that my discount tires store doesnt carry the rims in stock, so they'd have to ship it, and i'd be cheaper to get it thru 4wheel parts
