Default Will this combo work?

I have a stock 93 Ranger STX. I'm thinking about putting new wheels and tires on it.

Ultra Nomad wheels 15x8 with 19mm offset, and 3.77 backspace, with some kind of AT tire in size 265/75r 15. Will this setup work with stock suspension and no lift? Thanks for any info.

looks like it will fit, might need to trim a little bit though

My 96 STX Ranger had 265/75/15 on it stock with the stock wheels. You will probably be safe, but I can't say for sure because of the backspacing. I am not sure if those wheels have the same size back space as the factory wheels do.

Does anybody know where online I can find wheels with 4.00 backspacing? I think that is what the stock wheels are supposed to be on my 93 Ranger. I've been looking on tirerack.com, where there are some nice wheels with good prices, but all of them seem to be 3.77 or 3.75 backspace. I plan to run a 31x10.50R15 on a 15x7 wheel, which is the size I have on it now.

you can run the 3.75 backspace. I have that on a 15x8, had 3.25 on 15x8 before. Gives them a nice wide stance.

And that would work with no lift and 31x10.50R15 tires on them without rubbing?
