back spacing on rock crawlers?

i really want to buy these wheels but i have a question.

i asked the guy if he could measure the backspacing for me and he told me that it was 5.5. is that right? im pretty sure these wheels are rock crawlers series 51. i looked them up and the only backspacing is 3.75.

the wheels are 15x10

these are the wheels i want to buy


these are the series 51.

here is a link to them

i asked the guy what brand they are and he said when he bought them they were called crawler rims. so im guessing they are the rock crawlers. he also said that he payed $400 shipped for all four.

Maybe the guy doesn't know what he is doing and doesn't know what backspacing is.

He might be measuring the bolt pattern, and if he is getting 5.5 that won't fit. What did they come off of.

Tell him your really interested in buying them, but you need to verify the measurements and ask him to take a picture of the measurement he is taking.
