Back spacing? Quick question

I'm getting my new rims and tires mounted today. Anyways I was just wondering about the back spacing? The rims I bought were 15x8s and the stock ones were 15x7's. The back spacing on the new rims is 3 3/4". Is that the same as stock? what happends if its not how would I go about mounting these up to the truck? Thanks for the help!

stock is 15x7 with 4.5" bs

so yours will be 1" wider rim and stick out .75" more then stock wheels.. you wont have a problem mounting them

Yeah I hope not but its not too hard to do a little trimming. I'm going to the tire shop now to get the mounted and balenced. They gave me some bs about the tires being too big for them to put on the truck saying it was illegal and all of that. I told him to just mount and balance them then and I would put them on the truck.. haha idiots. Yeah if I had to I will just do a little trimming or just take the valance off. I'm not keeping it stock height for long anyways body lift is coming in a month or so. Thank you for the help man.
