I have 33/12.5/15 on 15x8 wheels. I see no problem with that. Good luck

I don't think they are 15inch wide (width) it's the diameter of the rim it self.. however, if they are 15 inch wide that would be weird ashell.. im going to check them out this weekend..

I know i was just messing around but usually you say the diameter first. If the person on CL put 8x15 im guessing hes not the smartest witch means talk him down. Good luck!

Is your truck 4WD? If so, you might have some rubbing issues if you don't have any lift.

Haha my bad, I didn't catch the 8x15 part last night at 4:00 in the morning after being awake for 22 hours. I meant 15x8 and so did he obviously.
Hey man, what's the backspacing????

here is the seller exact description on CL

"5 like new-used-black dished american racing wheels for chevy s10 bolt pattern 5x4.75 - 8 x 15 inch"

I thought the General consensus is if going 30/10.5/15 no lift is necessary or watsover.?

Im beat.. just got done doing the driver side hub what pita.. bolts gave me such a hard time... but got it all done up.. all worth it tough.. no more vibration/humming noise..

Oh, I didn't know he listed them as "black dished". If they are American Racing wheels then they should be called ar-767. But I think "black dished" fits LOL
I just replaced both my front hub assemblies and CV's two weeks ago. I used pb blaster and let the bolts soak for awhile and they still gave me trouble.
