Cragar Soft 8s on 05 Explorer?

Anyone know if these will work? I'm thinking of saving up for them and with 265/70/16 General Grabber AT2s

http://store.summitracing.com/egnsea...3&autoview=sku

Here are the details as on Summit:
Wheel, Soft 8, Steel, Black, 16 in. x 7 in., 5 x 4.5 in. Bolt Circle, 4 in. Backspace, Each

Any help is appreciated. It's hard to figure out what will work on these trucks for some reason...

Definitely need to re-think, then. I really like them (and the price) but maybe I should get a set of Ranger wheels that would sit out a little wider on my EX - probably wouldn't weigh so much! Thoughts? Needs to be a 16 inch wheel...

i've got those wheels on my truck and if i wasn't so headstong about my trucks red and black theme, i'd go back to aluminum, due to the weight and balancing issues. but, they still look damn good on my truck.
