Explorer wheel interchange question!

Will 17 inch (245-65-17 tires) wheels off of a 2005 EB fit on my 99 Eb? Currently have the stock 255-70-16's

I like the wheels, tires arent as aggresive as I'd like but i won't complain for the crazy price i got these for. They do need spacers though, as they are crazy close to the control arms and sit in further than I like. Anyone that used these wheels know how big of spacers would be ideal? Thanks!

The offset is "printed" on the inside of the rims. Between those and the difference in rim width, you can calculate what size spacers you want to return to the original stance (or even wider, if you want to).

Would I be able to use the factory studs with 1/2 spacers safely? Or would I need to beat out the old studs and replace them with longer studs...
