    Hey guys trying to get 15 inch micky thompson classic II wheels on my truck and I figured if you order 6 lug by 5.5 they should fit but the website I am getting them off of tells me they will fit but I got to order 17 inch rims or larger. I think hes just trying to get me to buy expensive 17 inch rims n tires. I got stock 16 inch rims i mean why would i have to go an inch bigger than that? Any help would be great thanks guys.

    I have 15x12 mickey thompson classic 2 and they fit fine. you are supposed to get 16 or bigger because of the brake calipers not clearing. just make sure you have the right backspacing and you will be fine.

    I was going to get the 15 by 10 with the 3.75 backspacing. thats all they come in. How much backspacing is on your wheel?

    so will 3.75 be enough for me with 15 by 10s to clear the calibers?
