Default Soft 8's dementions?

Hey all, OSS here;

Looking to order a set from Summit, but there's tonnes of sizes! I did a quick search on the forums, and I believe...

15x8 5x4.25 is the size I want, correct? I hope to run 31's soon, so I want to go with the 8" width. I plan on 2" shackle and 1.5 Tbar.

The bolt size is 5x4.75. I would suggest the 15x8 with 5" of backspacing

Make sure you post pics once you get them on

I can't find rims in those dimensions on summit or jegs :S All I see is 4"-4/5" backspacing. I know nothing about rim sizing

Damn, just called Summit, 5" backspacing is special order, $65 a rim (for general knowledge)

-OSS

*edit*

The more I try to read up on rim sizing and fitament, the more I'm gettng lost. I'm reading a few different bolt patterns, people saying they need different width rims, different offsets ughh!

Can someone just throw down specs for a 15" Soft 8, for a 4x4 platform. I'm on stock tires for now. I like to wheel, if that matters.

THANKS!!! LOL, Plan on ordering today!

Stock ZR2 wheels are 15x7, 5x4.75bp and 6in backspacing. If you want to run a 31-33x10.50, go with the 4.5 or 4.75 backpacing, they are still cheap and only stick out 1 1/2-1 1/4in past stock on each side.
