I recently upgraded to the aerospace disks kit but need to find new wheels since the kit is 5 lugs not 6.I'm lost as to what dimensions I need to account for in new wheels, I know the general size, 15x7, with 4.5 or 4.75x5, but what about offset? Bore size for the hub to fit through?

I went with the American Racing Torq-Thrust II wheels for the front on my Aerospace kit.
They are aluminum, Polished, 17 x 7 in., 5 x 4.75 in. Bolt Circle, 4 in. Backspace. (Summit Part Number: ARE-VN5157761)

I used the Mr. Lugnut (Summit PN: MLN-HR83-6710-4) hub centric rings. They did need a little bit of light sanding to massage them onto the snout of the hubs. Really only to deal with the machining tolerance of the snout of the hub.

I designed a 3D printed tool to help with my selection since I removed the torsion bars and welded in coilovers.

And the Continental ExtremeContact Sport, 215/45-17, W Speed, Blackwall DWS 06 PLUS - SIZE tires. (TireRack PN: 215/45ZR17)
The truck is still under construction so can't comment on how well the tires perform.
