you will need a wheel with a bolt pattern of 4.75" x 5 the wheel also has to have a backspacing of 4.5" - 5" depending on its width, now some companies reffer to backspacing as offset, so for them you will need a 0mm - +15mm at most.

Post up some pics of the rims you like and we can let you kjnow if they will fit or not.

Ok..........I know i am a pain, but I need to make sure that I am doing this right!

these are the rims I ordered....


I had to get the adapter kit which i never heard of before, but a friend told me that if they are not made for RWD, it could cause damage and it will look funny on my truck!

I ordered them through wheelguyz over the phone and the guy told me that any rim would fit with the adapter kit.

Can some one tell me whats right? I can always cancel the order, if i have to.

thanks

no chance in hell those rims are gona fit correctrly without an adaptor. What is this kit hes talking about? If the kit is around 150 bucks and includes 4 spacers/adaptors that each are 1.5" thick, plus they change the bolt pattern... then those are the adaptors you need :haha: If not, then expect to be buying a set to run those wheels on your truck.
