Frontiers have more room for bigger wheels and tires.

Also, the Hardbody's suspension isn't setup for that much extra weight, so the tie rods and center links wear out a little faster. The parts are bigger/thicker on the Frontiers.

But, in general, yes.

The Frontier wheels are a little more exciting than the boring Hardbody wheels, but the hub diameters are the same.

As far as "back spacing etc", not all Frontier wheels are the same size. You'd have to measure the wheels you are interested in.
