    I'm getting a 4" superlift suspension lift installed on my Job2 2001 SportTrac and want to pickup new, larger tires and rims. I was thinking about getting 16x8 rims to replace my factory 16x7 rims. I understand the factory rims have a 12mm offset and no clue on the backspacing, but do I have to get rims with that offset and whatever the backspacing is? Could I get say these rims?

    XD128 16" x 8" 5x114.30 Offset 0 Backspace 4.50 MATTE GRAY W/ BLACK RING

    Could I maybe use a spacer to make it fit?



    For tires I was thinking 265/75/R16 or 285/75/R16. Superlift says 33" tires will fit.

    I have 18x8.5/0 offset, with 265-60 tires. I would think those rims should work for you.
