bolt pattern

whats the bolt pattern on the rangers?
i have an xlt if that makes any difference or not.
my boss said we are gonna get me a hell of a deal on some teflon coated american racing mojaves or teh chambers. and i gotta deside if i want the 15x8s. or 17x9s.... i would like the 17s if the bolt pattern works out good, and since ill have a chunk of change to spend once tax returns come in ill get all my rims/tires and fiberglass fenders all squared away

yup, 5x4.5 bolt pattern and the stock rims are 7" wide with a 4.5" backspacing, so keep that in mind when you get new rims.

Offset I think is the imaginary center line of the wheel? I never paid attention to it. Think of it like this...if your stock rim is 7" and 4.5 inch backspacing, a 8" wide rim with 4" backspacing will be 1/2 inch out on the inside and 1.5" out on the outside. A 9" rim with 5" backspacing will be 1/2 inch in on the inside and 1.5" out on the outside...know what I mean?
