Hey will 2000 3/4 ton wheels work on my 86 Silverado?

    they are 16x7 eight lugs which i will need when i swap axles. 1st question: are they the right offset and bolt pattern?
    2nd question: Can i just take the center caps off in front for the hubs?
    3rd question: Whats the widest tire i can fit on a 16 x7? I have the factory wheels now (rally wheels with trim rings) which can't be any wider than 15x7 and i have 33x12.5 on them. They work fine.....

    This is just my opinion but.....I tried to put the wheels off my 98 z71 on my K5. sure its a 1/2 ton and different than what your are doing but the offset was WAY off, IMO the hubs hanging out the center of the wheel looked really goofy and I think they would really catch in the rocks etc.

    The 8 lug rims shouild bolt up to any GM 3/4 ton 8-lug axle with no problem.

    I personally would not run a 33"x12.5" tire on a 7" wheel though; but that's just my opinion.

    Do you have a lift? If not, they will most likely rub the inner fender walls when wheeling.

    When I did my 10 bolt to 14 bolt conversion, I opted for 15"x10" wheels; and they are a perfect fit for my 33"x15" tires on a 2 1/2" suspension lift.

    Good luck in whatever you decide,

    Thomas.
