Discussion in '1973-1991 K5 Blazer | Truck | Suburban' started by Impex, Mar 23, 2000.
Even if its a blazer, suburban, truck? Just as long as its 6 lug right?
if its the same generation then it should, but the newer, post-88/92 style, has a positive off set wheel, while the olders came with a 0 or slightly neg. offset wheel. so the newer may not clear the older, and the older may not clear the newer fenders, make sense?

Also if your looking at puting on a set of rims from a new vehical you'll need to enlarge the center hole due to the different dia. of the holes.

Don't quote me on this, but I also heard that the new body style trucks (2000 series) have a different bolt circle. Might be worth checking about.
'79 Blazer in progress
You will find some older 6 lug wheels from 2WD trucks with smaller center holes. The 16" wheels from the '88 - '98 body style have a different offset than the older trucks. I think they went back to 6 lugs on 2WD trucks again for '99, so those wheels may have small center holes as well as a different offset. Pretty sure that all 6 lug wheels are 6 on 5 1/2", including Nissan, Toyota (trucks and LandCruisers), and some others.

1987 Suburban 4X4 350
1988 Chevy Pickup 4X4 350
so If I found a set of 16" Rims from a 2000-2001 1500 series 4X4, would I have problems mounting them on my 75K5? What about the 99's?
Yes you will have problems... The newer ones have a lot of back spacing... Those wheels will run into your balljoints..
If you want ot go 16", go aftermarket...
