    Does anyone know the width and offset of the stock wheels on a 1987 or thereabouts K5? I'm assuming the width is 8", but don't have a clue about the offset. Is there an easy way to measure this? Ijust want to have the baseline specs handy for comparison when I finally get new ones.
    THANKS.

    to measire offset you can just take a slat or any flat piece of wood and lay it on the backside of the rim egde and measure down to the mounting plate of the wheel
