Backspacing on stock 16x7 alloys

Does anyone know the backspacing on the stock 16x7 alloys that came on my 2000 XLT?? I'm looking at different wheels and everything I find in a 16x7 has 4" of backspacing.

Thanks.

If I can find a single wheel identical to mine for a reasonable price, then I will buy one of those. If not, then I'm going to be looking to buy a complete set (preferably 5) of inexpensive steel wheels and sell the 3 stockers to cover the cost.

It's a real shame that the $29 one is polished and has the holes painted. If he had 4 of them, I'd get those but he's only got 2 so I can't get a matching set.

Backspacing is the distance from the inner (near truck) lip of the rim to the mounting flange.
