    I have a 91 K2500- C6P package.

    Has anyone installed the new aluminum wheels that come on the new 01 up HD line of trucks? I believe the bolt pattern is the same, but what about the offset and back spacing- any problems running 245 or 265 on the older chassis with these wheels?


    wheels like these?

    I don't think it will be a problem.I've seen quite a few older GM's running around with those wheels on them.

    There is a member on the site here who upgraded his wheels to those on an older Chevy. Check the Finally got a pic of my truck post. It has been posted recently. Ill see if I can find it for you.

    While there was some pretty radical changes in the offset on the 1500 model wheels when they chaged body styles in 88 that does not seem to apply to wheels on the 2500 series. The stock wheels on my 88 K3500 have the same backspacing as those on the 73-87 models and (I believe) the latest body style has kept that same dimension.
