Question Wheel Offset

What was the stock wheel offset/backspace for my 2001?

I'm looking at wheels online and would like to know the stock setup.

Thanks.

all wheels have an offset/backspacing that is measured from the inboard lip of the wheel to the face of the mounting surface.

i would like to know what backspacing is required to run 315x75r16 tires as the 250 i purchased w/ these tires rubs the leaf springs just prior to full lock.

one of these days i'll measure the backspacing of the wheels that are on it and get around to replacing them. but after talking w/ discount tire and another shop is seems it's going to be difficult to find an 8 lug wheel w/ enough backspacing to clear those tires.

Are you looking for 16" wheels so you can run the existing tires? Just about all the 16x8 wheels I offer have 0 offset with 4.5" backspacing. What backspacing did discount tire say you needed? I don't know what you have on there now but it shouldn't be a problem replacing your wheels.

On this subject, does anyone know if an E350 van has the same backspacing as an F350.

yeah, i'd like to keep the same tires as they are pretty much new. I'm missing the spare and want to get a full matching spare. It's got the black Craeger steel wheels on it now (w/ the red & blue rim stripe). I'll try to get one off this weekend to see what the backspacing is on them. I definitely want to stick w/ a cheap black steel wheel tho...

discount didn't know what i'd need (go figure) but i can tell you that it's probably 1/2" less than what the current wheel has to keep the tire off the leafs.
