Yes, but not all fit. Back spacing of 3.75 is necessary and possibly grinding the brake caliper.

If you have a Dana 30 front axle the MB 72's from discount tire will fit. Running them right now with 35's and no issues. All five cost about $500 and that will pay for its self then next time I buy tires. It is stupid how much Cheaper 35X12.5 R15s are over a 16 or 17 inch rim.

What size tires you running? And do you have a lift?

i spent 245$ on 15x8-3.75 bs(unique) for 5 rims. mtr/k 35x12.5x15 @ 220 each =1100$. Do to the way these rims have punched holes at the hub line. i had to grind a bit of the holes over metal at the hube line about 3/16 and small amount from the caliper face front only. took about 30 minutes to do all 5 rims and the front two calipers.



two wheel flex at lock only rubs the the stock fenders lip a tinny bit front

See my signature. Mine fit even with the wheel weights on the inside of the rim.
