For the life of me, I can't find the information on stock sami wheels - I know they're 15X5... bolt pattern? backspacing?

For you wheel gurus... are backspacing and offset the same thing, or not? Are there "stock" wheels from another vehicle that will work on a lifted sami???

Thanks
David

the stock wheels are 5 on 5.5" bolt pattern. Same as old ford trucks, old jeeps(cj's), scouts etc.

some old ford truck rims were 15x7" or 8" with 3.5" backspacing.

Offset and backspacing are related. offset is the distance the center of the wheel is offset from the face that bolts to the truck. Backspacing is the distance from the back of the rim edge to the face that bolts to the truck.
