I got to throw this out there, andrew you have a pretty truck. I think black bullets with a chrome lip would look killer on your truck. As for the offset im not sure, I know backspacing factory is 4in i think. I now on mustang wheels you need spacers for the front. A buddy of mine has stang wheels on his lowered 98. If I can get him on here in the next few days I will tell him to post pics.

So, say (theoretically) I need spacers for these to work. Would a tire shop have these on hand? Or at least be able to get me some? These rims have a 25.4mm offset. which means nothing to me, lol.

Is it positive or negative offset? Rear wheel drives are negative, front wheel drives are positive.

Summit sells spacers up to 7/16s for $15 a pair. As for shops having them, some do and some dont.

You can get spacers at your local auto parts store, like Pep Boys or Auto Zone or something like that. You just need them on the front. That back should be fine.
