are my factory rims zero, plus or minus?

i was on discount tire's website just looking at prices. the site says, that my truck wil fit a 31x10.5 bfg km2. the backspacing was zero i belive ( i forget and closed the window) they had them for $169 each and the bfg ats for $149 each. anyways, is this rim zero, plus or minus?

i kno i need new pics, i've got a couple from when i parked on a snowbank at the mall. but i haven't really taken many pics of my truck.

i was looking at both the at and the km2 and this would be when these tires need replacing.

Most stock wheels have a 4in backspacing I think. 0 backspacing would be unearthly.

ALL stock ranger wheels are 4.5" backspacing. those are 16x7 wheel...

you can mount a 265x75x16 on that wheel stock

0" backspacing would be quite interesting. I think most stock Ranger wheels have 4.5" of backspacing.

I'm guessing they're talking about offset which is different.

With your truck crank the bars a little, replace the lift blocks in the rear with 98-07 ones then slap on those 31's on your stock rims.

Being an 08 you automatically sit lower than previous years so it might run without the previously mentioned modifications.
