I believe they are 8" but those tires on those rims are 235/70/15 and the rim is wider then the tire. I am planning on putting on general at2's on either rim. So far it looks like the stockers are winning. I plan on chroming the steel's if i put them on. Oh yeah i washed my truck today!!!

if they are 8's and have good backspacing, id paint em black and get some stock center caps and 32x11.50s

if you keep the stockers get 265/75's

I believe the back spacing is around 3-3.5 but not sure. I will have to measure them for sure. They came of an old dodge ram charger. I could paint them black. They have black on the back side so yeah i could do that.
