1st off, if you have a 2wd truck, then you have 4" of back spacing. A 4wd truck has 6" of backspacing.

The problem of whether or not they will fit depends on the size tire you choose to install on them.

It all depends on what you want to do with the truck? If you were going to lift it (tbar crank & shackles), with a little trimming, you should be able to run 30" tires with the 4" BS rims.
