It would appear to me that you answered your own question. You need a 6x5 wheel to go on a 6x5 lug pattern.
Don't try to use another wheel, even if you can slip it over the wheel studs! When you tighten the wheel nuts it will stress the wheel studs as it tries to shift the wheel studs to the center of the lug nut holes. I've seen broken wheel studs before because of this.
2” leveling kit
1.25” wheel adapters
18” Tahoe/Silverado wheels
Result: Very minimal/non-issue rubbing, ONLY when wheels are turned all the way, i.e. backing out of driveway, parking spot, etc. (Dependent on slope of surface.)
Hey y'all! I just joined today to get a SOLID and TRUTHFUL answer to my tire/wheel question.
First of all, Karl (my 2003 TB EXT) and I have been thru A LOT in the few short months I've had him. Let me give you a quick synopsis of our short but intense relationship: I traded my 2001 yellow...
I know it can work. I just don't know how to do the math to see if what I want will fit.
To stick a set of 265/75/16 tires on a set of 16x8 wheels (also using a 1.5" spacer), how much backspacing and offset do I need? Or how do I figure it out?
-So I wanted to see if it was possible to do a 6x5.5 conversion on the Trailblazer. I've read a lot of post of people wondering if it is possible but no one has attempted it. I am planning on doing the conversion next spring but I needed to know is it even possible so I did a ton of research and...
Just thought I would post my findings before the leveling kit. 1.5" adapters, 2017 half ton wheels, and 255/70R17 tires. Minimal rubbing over bumps while turning. Leveling kit goes on this weekend and should be about perfect. Will post all before and after pics when I resize them.
