    wat?
    they are 6x5.5 or 6x139 (i think thats the crazy metric equivalent)...as far as tires, u can go as high as a 285/70/17, but that will give u some minor rubbing on the mud flap.

    285/70/17

    4.5" backspacing
    6x5.5 lug pattern

    They have a build a package option. Their computer didnt seem to want to put 285/70/17 BFGs on 17 inch rims, just call'em and they'll do it.

    FYI those tires are gonna be 32.7" in diameter.

    Seems like the more common areas for rubbing are the mudflaps, inside the fender, and the body seam where it's pinch welded. But as long as you're not trying to stuff 38"x14" super mud destroyers in your wheel wells it's fixable.
