Will these Wheels Fit?

Hey guys I need some answers and have come to the Sammy experts lol... I am looking a some wheels a guy has for sale and would like to know if you guys think they will fit. He said they fit standard Ford trucks and he also had them on a Dodge Ram. He told via email that they have a 3.5 inch center hole. The rears are 8.5 inch and the fronts are 7 inch. HE SAYS that they have a 4" back spacing...Is the back spacing a good thing? Will it get the wheels outside the fenders more or Less

Thanks

Mark

If the bolt pattern is 5 on 5 1/2", they will mount up. However, having different widths will cause the same size tires to have different actual diameters. This will cause you problems in 4-wheel drive.

Also, the 4” backspacing is a little much. It will tuck the tires inside your fender wells but your tires will probably rub on your springs.

Personally, I would pass on the wheels.
