Also did anyone ever buy from nationalwd? .. how are they ? . thanks in advance

just get them in a 15x8 with 3.75 backspacing if available. I dont have DC2s, but here is my stance with 15x8, 3.75 BS, 31X10.50R15 BFGs

You'll clear 31s without any problems, as for backspacing it should be the same regardless of wheel diameter. I'm pretty sure that only changes with width.

Mine are 3.75", puts the tire right at the outside edge of the fenders. I would try to get a 3.75 or 4 though, either one will work.
