I am looking at the same ones but black instead. I always heard at least 5 inches.

Here is my truck with the Mickey Thompson Classic II's. They are 16x8 with 4" backspacing and -12mm offset. I'm running 285/75/16 BFG A/T's.

The only way you can get the M/T Classic II in a 16x8 with 8x6.5 bolt pattern is the 4" backspacing and -12mm offset. That equals out to a 4.5" backspacing with the -12mm offset.
