    I just bought an 85 k5. Could someone tell me what the stock bolt pattern on these wheels is? It needs new tires and wheels bad (has the old flipper firestones on it) I have a few different rims in my garage from my jeeps but don't know if they are the same and I havn't brought the truck home yet.

    Thanks

    Your K5 will have a 6 bolt pattern, I think all the Jeeps have a small 5 bolt pattern. I think the Toyota's share the same pattern as the Chevy's.

    Ya that's what I thought. Just was hoping it's be a 5 on 5.5 becuse I have a ton of those rims around. I figured with tiny 10 bolt axle in it that it would only be a 5 bolt pattern.

    How hard is it to change a 12 bolt axle with a 5 lug pattern to the 6 bolt on the K5 (has a 10 bolt rear in it now).

    To convert a 2wd 12 bolt you only need 6 lug axles and 6 lug drums off of a 12 bolt. Also the 4wd versions usually have bigger brakes so you might need to use the backing plates, shoes and hardware off of the 4wd 12 bolt unless the 2wd was a hd version.

    I don't really have any nice ones anymore. I just sold my nice jeep with the good rims on it. I'v got some stock 5x8's and some kinda beat up rock crawler steels in 15x10. I have one nice set of chrome jeep wheels but they are on my other jeep. I was hoping they would fit since I blew the motor last month in it. I do have a nicer set of chevy rims on my wifes truck but she probably wouldn't like to find her truck on blocks when she goes to work.
