Yes... another will these rims fit thread...

I know for my 08 certain 15" rims dont fit well because of offset and I would need a 3.75 rather then a 4.5. But the ones I'm looking at are in MM, I'm thinking -38mm would be better for me then -27mm and would pop out of the wheel wells more.

Here are the wheels...

Thanks for your input!

nothing wrong with double checking beforehand!!!

very similar to my wheels... the measurements in mm threw me off a little bit too... are you wanting to go with a 15x8 or 10?? also what do you plan mounting on it?

im running a similar wheel (174b) and im pretty sure its; 15 x 8 5 x 114.3 -27 with 33x12,5s... and my front wheels stick out roughly 1" and the rear is out slightly past the fenders ( i can just see them spinning in my mirror )

15x8 -27mm offset = about 3.50" backspace
15x10 -38mm offset = 4.00" backspace

Well if the 8's fit I would rather have those. Good to know about yours since they are the same specs and you can actually vouch for them. Post up a pic of them!

yeah i was gunna say check out my album.. i dont have any really good side view pics to see how much they stick out, but you get the idea.. and now that KLC mentioned it, mine were defiantly 3.5" backspace..

theres 5" total.. 3" BL and 2" Prekey+mild torsion crank... been offroad and whatnot and havent had any rub issues (that i know of)

so what are you planning on wrapping around these new wheels??

How did you save the tow hooks with the BL?

Whatever I can find, I would rather get me a 16" rim and put my current tires on them for now... But I know I'll eventually buy MTZ's or KM2's if I can afford them lol
