Should work without any problems. What's the width of the wheel?

I run 4" bs 15x8's with a 275/60/15 and don't have any issues. I also have a different set of 15x9 Bogart wheels with 4" backspacing and don't have any issues with those either.

What size are you running up front? I'm in the market to replace all 4 and just curious what you ended up with?

I have two set of fronts.

My front wheels (shown in the pics) are 15x3.5”, 1.75” backspacing with 205/75/15’s. Roughly 27” tall with 5” actual tread width. Section width is about 7.5”

My other set are 15x4’s , 1.25” backspacing with 26x6 Mickey Thompson SR radials actual tread width is 5” on these as well. Section width is about 6”
