Well if they're anything like Rangers, which I would think they are, then it should be 5x4.5 Or I think the metric size is 5X114.3

Also be sure to make note of the backspace. I believe our stock backspace is 12, so if you go with something larger, say 24, you must run a spacer.

No, you are quoting OFFSET and it is about it's not 12 (in mm) it's 25.

The backspacing of our standard wheels is either 4.5 or 4.75 inches. I have seen both quoted, and it's not much of difference. Compared to a 3.5 backspace (center on a 7 inch rim) that would be an offset of 1 inch or about 25mm.

I'm currently using M/T Classic II's with a 3.25" backspacing. They also make some with 3.5" backspacing. Lower backspacing makes your wheels stick out farther.

Absolutely correct. The smaller the backspacing, the more the wheel sticks "out".

Which set of these would look better on my truck, I like the first set better.
Are these pretty good prices?

I like them both but I wouldn't buy the first set for an offroad truck -- they'd get torn up pretty quick I think. They are a great street look wheel to my mind though.

I was thinking about getting the 62's in the second link before I got the deal on the Mickey Thompsons. They are a nice "machined" finish that won't show wear so much and better for offroad I think.

Just my .02 -- I like 'em both for different reasons.

Edit: Oh, and pricing. Both those vendors are big wheel sellers and their prices are good, even with shipping usually -- and sometimes that's included.

However, look around and watch for high shipping on low prices. You might do better than "buy it now" if you catch the auction at the right time. But there was one vendor who threw in the shipping if you clicked buy it now but if you bought at the lowest auction price, the shipping charges were MORE than the buy it now! Watch out for that nonsense also, lol.

I have seen your truck, Clay -- and it looks good by the way. I was just commenting "expansively" (oh, okay, I'm long winded, lol).

Money. Bigger rims mean different tires I am on a very limited budget right now with paying house taxes.
