Wheels Question (backspacing) MT Classic II's

Hey guys i have the chance to get a pretty good deal on a set of Mickey thompson Classic II's. Which are by far my favorite wheel.

The one's Im looking at are the 16x8's. The shop i talked to says they only come in one available back spacing.... which he said is 4 7/16".

Does this sound right (is that really the spacing?)? Will this look ok on my truck? Whats the factory spacing?

Id search this stuff but im at work & dont have a minute of free time (other than to ask this )

So any help would be awesome!!!

Factory spacing is 4.5 I believe. So they should be out a little more, but not hugely

I beleive my Mickey Thompsons are a 3.75" backspace. They stick out slightly more than my Cragars which were 4" backspace.

Pics for you. But mine are 15x8 with 31s.

Thanks for the heads up.. the deal ended up not being as good as i was told...

Are there any MT Classic II look alikes out there that will fit? and have a better back spacing? better pricing?

I found the American Racing Baja... looks awesome but not available in 5x4.5" spacing... and those had 4.5" back spacing....

American eagle is out.. same deal

LMK!!!

Thanks
