Here is a picture of my truck.



2012 v8 z71 crew cab auto.

World of wheels Boston is coming up in two weeks and I would like to get some wheels for the truck.

Pro Comp Alloy Wheels Part 5038-7983 - Metal Mulisha Series 5038 General, 17X9 with 6 on 5.5 Bolt Pattern - Satin Black - - 4 Wheel Parts

These are what ive found that I like. Whats everyones thoughts on these?

2 questions I have are:

Will these fit the factory tires I have which are 265/70/17?

also with the backspacing listed as 4.75 with a -6 offset, will this fit the rancho 4"lift I plan on adding next year which requires I believe a 4.5 offset?

Sorry ive lowered cars my whole life and this is all new to me.

Thanks for any and all help!

You're gonna want 4.5 bs at the most if you want a rancho lift.

Edit: Rancho rebate is going on now til June 31. Get up to $400 back on a prepaid visa

Yeah i dont want that lol. Ok, so 4.5 back spacing is a must.

How do you think theyll fit on these tires by the tire size posted above ?

Look in my albums. I'm running that size with a rancho lift and 4.5 bs. I originally put my stock 265s on the new wheels to see how it looked and decided to stick with that size instead of upsizing to 285s.

9" is the max wheel width for those tires. Stock wheels are 7.5", mine are 8".

All set? If you go with those wheels and want a rancho lift, you will need spacers for the front at least. Rear will be fine.

If you like them, buy them.

I personally think 9" wheels are too wide for a 265. Look up your tire manufacturer, you'll see they likely agree.

The backspace values will clear your truck in current conditions.

By the way, you don't need to specify both the backspace and offset because they are one in the same. Because you wrote both, I had to double check your values to be sure you didn't write in error.

4.75" of backspace MAY work with the rancho lift IF you are going to run 265/70/17 or 33x10.5 tires. Will NOT work if you are going to use 285/70/17(or wider) tires it will rub the upper ball joint. You can use 1/4" ring spacers but they don't leave a lot of thread on our short lugs for the nuts to grab on to
