Wheels...I need em

I am going to retread a set of 8.25R16 tires and want to change out the disco spares i have my truck on now.

I like the looks of a standard modular wheel over the LR style wheels like the picture attached.


I would like the wheel to move outboard without having to install spacers.

I know procomp makes one that is 16x7 with a 4.5 in backspace part number PCW87-6756

GCR also carries an american racing 16x7 with just under a 4 1/4 in backspacing

Diamond racing can do a 16x7 with a 4in backspace in gloss black with Dshaped coined holes

I have no idea what my disco spare backspacing is right now




any help? Backspacing is the real info i need

No rubbing from 35's with only 2" of lift? Nice. Got the wheels turning in my head again about what my next set of tires will be...

What is the backspacing on that 15? Is it the same American Racing wheel mentioned in the OP, just at 15"? Thats a hell of a deal on 5 modular wheels.
