Opinions on this wheel

Found a smokin deal on these. FORGED 20x10 with 5" backspacing. 3 yr chrome warranty. Whadda you think?

is 5" backspace ok for a 99? running 4.5 now. I dont think a 1/2 inch will matter.

Re: Opinions on this wheel

OK. I just bought a set. I was scared to wait. I got em for 199 EA direct from Centerline.

4 wheel parts gets 536 bucks each for em.

Re: Opinions on this wheel

the tires will rub your leaf springs with that much backspacing, at least mine do at 4.75"

Re: Opinions on this wheel

Big plus. I learned the hard way about chrome on wheels for these trucks.

Kinda stoked though. I've always had to settle for a cheap "cast" wheel. Finally gonna have some nice ones.

My thought on this was...my 15.50s didnt rub with 4.5" BS, so I figured a 12.50-13 with 5" BS would be about the same. ? maybe?

I don't know, but I see reason behind your logic. My 35x12.5x17 rub on the 4.75" wheels I have, and I am a bit disappointed by it.

The higher the backspacing number, the closer in they are.
