Question Caliber Rims on Ranger

Will Dodge caliber rims fit and work on my 98 2wd 2.5l Ranger? I noticed the caliber bolt pattern is 5x4.5 or 114.3, and I have the chance to buy the 4 steel rims with tires for cheap

Do you know the backspacing of Dodge Caliber wheels?

My gut tells me the backspacing might be too great to work on Rangers.

So they might not "fit & work" like the OP was wondering after all.
