This is what I went with. Mine is a 2001 Explorer rear end with disk brakes. My tires are just a hair to wide and every now and then you can hear a squeal when the rubber hits the bed wall. A 3.5" backspace would prevent that.

Wheel Vintique Series 12 15x7 4” backspace
Bolt pattern is 5 x 4.5
B.F. Goodrich Silvertown 225/75RX15 - 2.75" WW
Section Width 8.8 Inch
Height/Diameter 28.3 Inches

You really need to measure your truck yourself. Not all of these trucks are the same nor are the axles. It could be an expensive mistake.

Here is a link to a handy form that I used to order mine from Wheelsmith. theWheelsmith.net - Wheel Gemometry
