    As shown in this '88 folder linked to on the specifications page, the rally wheels that supposedly came standard with the Silverado package:

    Both Transwheel and American Racing offer the (or what is at least very similar to) OEM aluminium wheels:

    ...but does anybody know where I can still pick up the "rally" type today?

    I just traded a set to CMOE back in the spring. All I can say is keep an eye out on here or check Craigslist. They show up periodically.

    So, being lucky enough to pick up a used set from somebody is the only way to go, huh? Can't get new ones anywhere? Are they very sought after? Do you know roughly what kind of price I'm in for? I have ugly white spokes on my K5 Silverado for some reason, and all I know is, they need to be swapped! :hack:

    Ok, I'll keep looking. They were my first thought when looking for replacements for my white spokes as they were supposed to be stock, but if none turn up it's not the end of the world. Does anybody have some suggestions 'bout what other truck wheels might look good on the Blazer, by the way?

    I know the 1987 came with white wagon wheels. But watch eBay and check salvage yards.

    if you want steel 15x8 rallys pm me.

    if you want aluminum ones. buy the aftermarkets and then get 4 centeer caps from the gm ones and drill and tap the bolt holes to hold them on. and also this will alow you to jump up on width over stock size rims.

    Thanks, good find! I'll get 'em from there if I get em, but thanks for the rest of the tips too! I don't have the GM white wagon wheels either, this is some other aftermarket kind. I was pondering going back to the stock rallys on my '88 for the "authentic" feel, but I have to admit there may be better choices from a purely aesthetical perspective. And as pointed out, I might wanna put bigger tires on than a 15" rim will allow...
