Hello Dan,
I believe they are. They were already on the truck when I got it. They are 17". I think they are 7"or 8" wide. The fronts are 235/45 and 255/45. No rubbing issues.

Fronts are 15x8 with 4in backspacing and rears are 16x10 and I think they are 4in bs also. Tires are 235/60 and 285/60.

Rear suspension is a parallel mono leafs mounted under the frame rails.

Pics can be found in my thread.
