    Those look like 15 inch wheels front and rear. I believe the backspace is 4.75 inches on the rears but dont quote me on that.

    Their website will tell you the backspacing on there.

    You can order 17 or 18 inch wheels from them as well.

    The measurements are whatever the owner ordered. The RTS is a custom-build wheel.

    You can order them through Summit in sizes from 15-18" diameter, widths from 5.5" through 12", with the backspace available in half inch increments.

    If you want a set, go to Weld's website, download the fitment form, measure it, and call them. They'll tell you exactly what'll fit.

    I would say that the guess of 4.75" backspace is pretty close. Here is my RTS rim, 15x9.275 with a 5.5" backspace and 275/60 tires. I have a frame notch.

    Sweet! Iv been looking around. Thinking of the 15x8 rears so I don't have to notch the frame. What's the back spacing for the fronts on yours?

    I have the Strange front brake kit which widens the front track some so I needed a little more backspace... I have 15x6.275 rims up front with 4.5" backspace and 26x8 Mickey Thompson Sportsman S/R tires.
