    I have a set of Eagle Wheels Series 136 they are 15x10. If I measured correctly the backspace is 3.75 inches. By my figurin I think I need a 1.25 inch wheel spacer. Is this right? Has anyone ever bought any wheel spacers off ebay? I have found a complete set of 4 for $119 with free shipping. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    One other thing I read somewhere (dont know exactly where) that with the 1.25 wheel spacers i would have to grind down the factory studs. If so how would i go about doing that and is it even advisable?

    We need more information about the truck that they are going on and the tires you plan on running to provide you with the correct answer.

    That's a stock tire size for first gens. You don't need spacers.

    How did you measure the BS?

    You should have measured it like this:

    Yes, I mean the 31-10.5 15 was a stock size on 95.5-00 tacos. It's the same (roughly) as a 265/70 16 and 265/75 16. There a minor height differences.

    The stocks were deeper I believe. You should be fine.
