Great wheels!

5x5 is the same thing as 5 on 127.

Less backspacing = further out from the vehicle.

You want the 4.53 back spaced wheel, that 5.71 will NOT work because it will put your tire too close to the lower control arms in the front and the rear sway bar links and so on out back. You want 3.75" to 4.75" of back spacing with 4 - 4.5 being the sweet spot for fender coverage vs lack of rubbing. I run 4.75 on mine and my 37/1250s rub the lower control arms when I turn all the way. I only turn all the way when I'm ghost riding my whip. LOL

Let me know if you want to talk about pricing...I can meet or beat most.
