Original Mickey Thompson rims

I am looking at a set of what appears to be a set of original Mickey thompson aluminum wheels. they are really clean and 15x10 5 on 4.5 backspacing. The guy is asking 350 OBO. I am thinking about offering 300 and call it a day. I want to drop down to a 15 in rim because the 33X1250r15's Good Year Wrangler Duratracs im looking at are about 500 dollars cheaper than the 285/75r16 so even with buying the rims i will still save 200 bucks off and next time will save even more.

Will have any problems with the 15X10 rims as far as turning or rubbing on anything?

You said they have "5 on 4.5 backspacing...". I think your refering to the bolt pattern there. But if I am thinking right, those have a 3&5/8" backspacing. I ran 15x10 with a 3.25 back spacing no problems and I can't think of any reason you would run into any issues either. Those are a popular jeep wheel and many people run them.

With a 15" wheel though you are limited though with your brakes. So if you have a big brake kit or are going to get one, you will want to research your options there cause it could be an issue.
I did mean bolt pattern. I am typing/watching tv so not 100% paying attention to what im typing just letting my fingers to the work... Thanks. I have no intentions of going over 33's. I also have no reason to go to big brake kit anytime in the near future. I have a budget boost and will be getting a body lift soon.
