If you have a 17x7 with 4" backspace that is sticking 3/4 - 1 inch the you need a 17x7 with 4.75 - 5 inch backspace to sit about flush.

FYI the stock 17" mustang wheels are 8" wide. If you look down in the wheel and tire forum where this thread should have been posted I think you will find lots of pics showing them on Rangers. Can't tell you what the offset of them are. I know sometime they work perfect other times they need a spacer. Seems to vary by the truck and wheel style.

17X7 w/4" backspacing will not give a "0" off-set but 1/2".
