No, offset and backspace are different.

Run the wheels, you'll be fine<img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

4.5" back offset might have the tires rub on the rear frame rails. Probably not with the 255s but might when you upgrade someday to 12.5" wide tires. The 16 x 7" wheels on my 255s are 4" back offset. The 15 X 8.5" wheels on my 33 x 12.5 are 3.75 back offset. If I were buying the wheels I'd search for 3.75 back offset - better future potential.

My 1-ton has 4 of the 255s in the rear. I'm looking for a local supplier. Who makes the Trailcutter?

I'll guess Cooper actually makes them. They are labeled Tempra.

These look the same:
Laramie

and so do these:
Eldorado

and so do these:
Tempra

and so do these:
Tire Shop

Looks like every sam dick and harry relabels them. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
