      Yep, I have the same wheels on mine, I just paid $43 a piece from Summit Racing about two months ago.

      which size backspacing did you have? also how did the wheel cover fit on the cragars?

      The backspacing is 4" on a 15x8" wheel, it just clears my calipers. The center caps are from the junkyard, they can be found on 16" Explorer/Ranger rims and clip onto the factory ST, Explorer, Ranger lug nuts.

      I picked them up for $5 a piece so I got five since I plan on having the spare mounted to a custom steel rear bumper with a swing out tire carrier (if I ever get time to build it).
