'98 1500 4x4 Wheels
I'm trying to buy new wheels for my truck as I need new tires and I dont like the 16" Aluminum wheels. So I am switching to 15"x8" steel wheels. Got a couple questions though. What is the backspacing on the stock wheels? Offset?
This is what Im looking at getting, going to be putting 33x1050x15 tires and Im wanting them to stick out a little farther than factory.
