    In the next month i'm moving from Los Angeles to Salt Lake and need to get my 74 K5 there somehow. It has 15" 5 lugs with 33"X12.5" on and are obviuosly too wide for a dolly or trailer. My question is: are Chevy 15" 5 lug wheels, Chevy 15" 5 lug wheels, Chevy 15" 5 lug wheels...ie: will 15" car wheels with much smaller tires fit the front so i can dolly it?? The truck has no engine/tranny/transfer case so i think it only weighs around 3,000lbs. Thanks in advanced.

    To answer your question, no. The studs on a truck are 1/2" vs the studs on a car that are 7/16". The car wheels won't fit on your truck. Try using wheels from a 1/2 ton truck with smaller tires.
