    I know nothing about Chevy trucks. My father has a '72 Chevy Full Size. I have a set of Tires and Wheels from a '98 Trans Am, 16x8, 5 bolt, 4 3/4 pattern, 6.78 Offset - will they fit my father's truck - and if so, what adapters/condsiderations need to be made? Thanks!

    I might be mistaken, but I am pretty sure in 72, all pick ups had 6 lug wheels. I had 2 friends that had 1970 trucks, one was 4wd, and the other was 2wd, and both had 6 lug wheels.

    Thanks - I check my father's truck and it is 5 lug - I just need the spacing and offset capabilities...

    I'm pretty sure the bp on the truck is 5x5" Not 100% sure of that however.

    I think the s10's and cars had the 5x4.75" bolt pattern, some jeeps and older Mopars had a 5x4.5"and then goes the 6x5.5" and so on

    I don't believe they fit.They will fit a smaller truck,like an S10 or Blazer/Jimmy.

    I thought the S-Blazers ran a six lug. I have a set of Chevy truck wheels that fit my Toyota six lug perfectly. Not sure where they came from though.

    All S-Series trucks were 5 bolt.The 6-bolt rims came on some C\K Series pickups.

    Here's what I got from asking around - tell me if it sounds right: 1/2 ton are 5 bolt/4.75 spacing (standard GM). 3/4 ton are six bolt...

    6.75 back spacing will work, depending on whether and/or how much the truck is lowered.

    Sound right?

    Thanks for the help!
