Default Re: Motegi rims from a mustang will they fit?

Ok so i didnt ask the right question. I know my lug size is 5x114.3 so i know they will fit in that way. My real question i guess is about what offset can i use on my ranger? Safely?

From what I've read (mind you I researched this for my own Ranger, but never did it, so take this with a grain of salt), between the hub offset and the need to clear your 2WD truck's large hub dust caps, 1"-1.25" spacers are popular.

from experiance of using Mustang rims , yes you will need spacers , the Mustang rim has approx 6 inches of back spacing , the Ranger is aprrox , 4 1/2 inches of back space , the spacers give you the same back spacing

So im gonna need 1 1/2" wheel spacers? I read somewhere else that 1/4" ones would work but obviously not if i need to make up that much space

A 1/4 inch isnt quite enough , min would be 3/8s ,1/2 would be better but then you wont have enough thread on the wheel studs
