New rims.... well new to me

This weekend gonna pick up a lightly used set of eagle alloy 137's black face like these

http://aewheel.com/eagle_alloy_wheels.cfm?id=263#

they are 16x8 with a 4.625" backspacing


i have 265/75/16 tires on my stock 16x7 y-spoke rims. trucks got cranked t-bars with a shackle lift in the rear. So even though the backspacing is a little different then stock I am sure they will still fit just fine.

rangerboy101 so no rubbing issues I take it since your tires are wider then mine it should be okay.

I rub on the sway bar at full lock but it doesn't hurt the tire at all. You'll be fine.

Very excited.
Now what to do with the stockers? I am thinking either sell them or keep em and eventually get some winter tires.

Just like he said you'll be fine. I ran 265/75/16's on my 16x8 with only a 1" tbar crank with no rubbing at all.
