    Another Wheel Post

    Iíve spent hours researching wheels for my 95 MM and found a set that might work but I canít find much about wheel width in all the posts Iíve read. The wheels are 15x8 6x5.5 hub is 108, offset is -27. The truck is stock height. Iím a bit unsure about the width and offset. I donít want them sticking out way past the fender. What do you all think?

    -27 would be 1 inch negative of center, or 3 inch backspace. These will stick way out on you truck requiring flares to cover the tires.

    Thanks for the info. I ended up finding a set of factory chrome wheels! I’m actually flying up to NC and r3nting a SUV to drive them back to Florida...crazy I know but I really want them. It looks like they have 205 70 R14 tires but the guy said only two have decent tread so I plan to buy a whole new set...should I look for that same size or should I do 195 75 R14 or maybe 205 75 R14? I can’t find anything online about the proper size for the chromes...only the basic stock. Not sure if they take the same tires...

    you can go 225 60 14 on the wheels - they are 14 x 6 vs 14 x 5.5 of the steel wheels with a more positive offset to deal with the wider wheel. The 225 60 14 tires are 26" in diameter - same as the stock tires. you can use 195 75 or 205 75 14 - the 205 is the same 26" height.

    Do you see any issues with doing the 205 70 14’s? I found a great deal on them an the other sizes you mentioned cost 2-3 times more so I’m hoping these will work. Appreciate your input.

    they will work fine - I understand the cost difference.

    I have 14 70 215s and don't get quite as much lock as I would like (rubs steering box and sway bar) so may go slightly narrower up front. Heaps of room in the rear tub for big wheels

    Edit. Woops, I mean 15"
