Wheels sizes???

Ok, so i'm trying to match up a fifth wheel for my spare tire and i'm having trouble getting the size right. It asks for the bolt pattern, size and backspacing. How do i figure out those measurements for my current set of wheels?

Bolt pattern will be 5x4.5", most likely a 15x8, and as far as back spacing -- you can measure it yourself by getting the distance between the back lip of the wheel to where the wheel would contact the vehicle (hub or mounting flange, whatever it's called).

That's a terrible explanation - Jerry has a good picture he posts about finding that.

thats from the back of the rim just to dismiss any confusion^

and read your tire it should say rim size. and they are either 8 or 10 wide probably 8 as mentioned.
