Rim question


Recommended Posts

Same pattern but the rims off of the trucks with disk on the rear WILL NOT clear the steering on the front or drums on the rear of the older trucks. I have a set of wheels in my garage that came off of an '01 that are 16" and they will not work on my '96. I tried them on a '98 and they won't fit.

What is the difference between disc and drum wheels? I swapped in a disc rear so it doesnt apply to me, but I am looking at other wheel options. Basically if mine ever crack. Leaning towards 3rd gen 17" so I can goto bigger brakes. What is the offset on the 2nd gen 16" and the 3rd gen 17"s?

The inside of the wheels off of a rear disk truck are not as large as the ones off of a drum brake truck. I was told that you could grind the ridge off the drums and they would fit, but I am not about to do that. The 17" wheels have what looks to be the same offset as the 16" wheels. I am running a set of 17s off of an '06 on mine and they really upgraded the look of the truck.

Where did you get them, and what is a normal price maybe? Craigslist is kinda dry around me. Next time I need tires I want to put those on. I really like the look of em on 2nd gens. :thumb1:

I have a friend that bought an '06 and put aftermarket rims on and I just happened to be in the right place at the right time! I have not taken care of them like I really should, but they still look good and they dressed up my truck a bunch! BTW, I got them with the tires, lugnuts, and hubcaps for $600.
