    Hi,

    I have a 99 suburban that I just got. Its a 2500 with a 454 and 4 wheel drive. Its really clean with 125 k on it. Im looking at putting a set of tires on it, but the choices for it are fairly limited. It has those god-forsaken 16.5" rims. Im looking at getting a set of wheels and tires for it and I like the choices of 16" rims. Will they fit? Or do I have to get 16.5 or bigger?

    Thanks in advance,

    Tony

    If this thing is a '99 it should have 16" rims. Gm stopped using 16.5" rims by the early 80s. I would replace rims. You should be able to find factory take offs for 200 or less.

    If it makes any difference, I had put a set of 16" wheels on my '73 C20. It had the big brakes and I never had any clearance issues, so as far as I know there are no issues on GM trucks with fitments.
    If it's an 8-lug you can put them on. (As long as it's not a Ford rim-they did something funky with the bolt patten when they went to 17s.
