Default wheel size question.

heres a dumb question.

my stock wheels are 15x7 on my tiny stock tires. i want to eventually get some 33's on some 15x8 black wheels. the thing is i hate my wheels now and want to update to the black ones as soon as possible. now heres the question. could i put the 15x8 wheels on my current tires even though i have 15x7's on them now? im uncertain on how this works out and thought id ask.

and by the way these are the wheels im looking at now.

i was also looking at these ones but would rather stay with aluminum instead os steel.

Default Re: wheel size question.

and hey since ive already go the thread going. what amount of backspacing would i need? i want to get 33x12.5x15r eventually but for now would need to fit 235/70/15 would the backspacing be the same and what amount would be best?

and just to confirm rangers have 5 x 4.5 bolt oattern right?

and just for fun i photoshopped the rims onto my truck. not the best but whatever.
