    i used to have a set of factory cast aluminum wheels on my 1985 K5 but sold em cheap years ago. Anyone have a set laying around and can tell me what backspacing they have?

    OK I measured the ones my buddies tires came on , from the surface that touches the drums/rotors to a piece of steel across the rim edge I get roughly 4 5/8ths /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
