You do realize they are set for an Isuzu truck, right? Look around at discount tire, or tire rack.. some of those sites sell rims just like those.

Also, if you put in your vehicle specs, ebay can actually match wheels that will fit your truck correctly. But to be on the safe side, before you have tires mounted on them.. do a dry fit to your truck. Apply a lug nut and check for steering clearance as well as ride clearance.

Thank you for a response, I have my truck saved on there on my eBay app and those show as they should fit but I am not entirely sure that's why I wanted to ask around. Also what is a dry fit?

A dry fit is where you mount the rim and only the rim to the vehicle just to make sure it fits properly and you can turn with the size of the tire. If you mount the tires on first then fit and it doesn't fit, then you're stuck with new rims you can't use.

Most if not all places that sell rims will not take rims back if tires are already mounted on them. So be sure to have a dry fit done first to save yourself lots of money.

Nissan Hardbody 4x4 had a stock 15x6 chrome wheel that came on many XE's that look about the same as that one. Prolly pick up a full set of used ones for less than $100. If it were me I'd look at the early Frontier 16x7 inch four spoke alloys that came on the Frontier SE in the early 2000's.
