Default 15" wheels on 98 Ram

I'm trying to buy new wheels for my truck as I need new tires and I dont like the 16" Aluminumwheels. So I am switching to 15"x8" steel wheels. Got a couple questions though. What is the backspacing on the stock wheels? Offset? Will 15" wheels fit? I have heard yes and no? My truck is 98 Sport 4x4. Im used to my ford that has a hub sticking out through the front rims, with the ram the hub stops at the rim surface doesnt it. so i dont need to worry about the inner circle of the wheel?
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.

15's will fit , i had my 15X10's with 33x12.5 and 3 5/8th's back spacing on my 98 qc 4x4 with a 3 inch lift, they would rub a bit on turns, but only hard turns. not sure what factory backspacing was, then ended up with 16x8 rims with 4" backspace and that looked real good.

How far did they stick out from the fender edge. I have fender laws here in pa. Would fender flares cover it?
