    I have stock dunlops grand treks P245/75R16 Tires. I am going to wear them all the way down before i get new ones.

    I am looking to order cheap black rock crawler wheels. I know my lug pattern is 6 on 5.5 (16x8?) but I am having trouble decide on the backspacing. In the future I would like to run 31s or a 32 but I do not want my backspacing on my stock tires looking like they stick out to far.


    also will the tpms work on these new wheels?

    Any suggestions. Any help would be nice thank you.

    4.5 backspacing. Yes the TPMS are removable, but there is a set for alloys and a set for steelies.
