Curious... Fir those into alternate tire sizes, what are your thoughts on these? Seller claims they are Billet mfring... Any idea what they are worth? Curious about the stance on a stock suspension set up...

I don't know if they will fit, but I can tell you what does fit:

54-Series Magnum 500 Wheel

Size: 15'' x 10''

Bolt Circle: 5 x 4-1/2"

Rear Spacing: 5''

6.25" backspace vs 5" backspace is a big difference

One of the members here is running 6.5" backspacing on his 15x10 rears with 295/50R15 tires.  I have 5.25" backspacing on mine, and that's leaving almost 2" to the springs, which tells me another 1.25" of backspacing would have the inner edges of the tire/rim pretty much right there on the springs.

You might want to check with the seller - the 9.5" rim with 6.25" backspacing could be a typo, considering the 9" rim only has 4" of backspacing.  A full 2.25" more backspacing might look a little goofy with the fronts being right about where they should be and the rears tucked in really deep.

Hope this helps.
