First off WOW I cant believe you got that many views and no help on this, real awesome guys but... Not quite sure what you mean by this, the MT classic 2 for our truck in the size you want is going to be the right backspacing. You can look it up on their site, just get a 16x8 with bolt pattern to fit our trucks and you will be good to go. I actually like MT rims over the other brands that have the same style rim because the rims stick out alil more giving a better look IMO.

EDIT: here I figured id help you out. http://www.mickeythompsontires.com/w...item=ClassicII

click on the 16x8, bolt pattern 5-4.5, click on the buy me and it will show all the online websites that have them and their price. I order most everything through Summit, I live in KY n their main headquarters is in Ohio so I ordered my rims actually this wed night and they arrived fri xmas eve. Yea a day and a half, they are always great to me, online IM with them if you need any help, and very fast shipping. But thats it there ya go.

Not to thread jack but this is very helpful information. I am planning on getting the same thing for my truck, only was wanting to get 15" instead of 16". Would I still be able to just click 15x8 - 5x4.5 bolt pattern and be ready to go?

Didn't know if the inch smaller rim would make a difference or not, my guess is no, but wanted to be sure.

nope. the size of the rim (hight wise) makes no difference in backspacing, only width does

Chaddwalters, yes you will be fine thats actually what im running and so is ranger4x4 which im sure he will chime in soon, so you will def be fine. Id TOTALLY recommend a 3 inch body lift before you decide to get them. That is in no way saying you cant put them on a stock truck, you totally can I just think it makes the rims look SOOOOO much better being lifted with bigger tires n sidewalls. But again that is totally up to you.

the MT classic II's and MT classic locks have a 3.625" BS they will stick out more than stock but will work fine unless your going up a couple tires sizes.
