what does everyone think of these? i just cracked 2 of my wheels and im lookin to get a set of these cuz they look nice and are cheap. my taco is my daily driver so will driving with a set of steelies be a problem? im lookin to get the 15x8 wheel size and im gonna run 32x11.50.15s on it but im not sure if i should get type A or type B? i heard the difference between the two is the backspacing. anyone know what the backspacing for the type A or type B are? the wheels i have now have 3.75 backspacing and those stick out a bit for my taste. so is type A or type B the one for me? thanks in advance.

"We carry these with a couple of different backspace settings; one that is good for stock tires and up to 11.5" wide ... called TYPE A and another that is good for stock size tires up to 12.5" wide called TYPE B. ... TYPE B has less backspacing which causes the tire to stick out from the fender a little more than TYPE A..."

You want Type A.

i've got these but i got them from 4wheelparts. they offered free shipping and a free lugnut/valve stem kit so they ended up being cheaper. part#87-5883 for the 15x8's with 3.75" bacspacing. how far are yours sticking out with the 3.75"? mine come just to the end of the flare and i think they look great

I have the same wheels as yotracer and they do a good job. Got them from 4WPs also. However I need fender flares now because of the offset. They were a good bit less than the wheelers ones and they clear the brake caliper. Get yourself some you will like them. John

i tried searchin on the 4wp site for these but i couldnt find it? um...i just got some info that the ones wheelers sell are 4.5" or 4.0" backspacing...you know if 4wp has this size also? my wheels only stick out about an inch and a half or two inches but i dont have fender flares so it makes it seem like it sticks out even more.

they arent listed on the website, but if you call them they should be able to find them for you. they look exactly like the wheelers black steelies

15x8 and tire size??

YoTracer.. what size tire do you have on your truck? Do you have any problems rubbing either on Front or back? any problems during normal highway driving with the 15" rims and tire setup?

I was thinking to go 285x75x16 but I hear that it rubs on the front. but not sure about the type of rim off set they are using. I want to get the best fit and performance on my truck... I currrently have Cam2.5 and Deaver/5100 combo on my 04 dcab 4x.

Your info or anyone's info would be greatly appreciated!!
