what wheel sizes will fit my 86 C10?
« on: August 26, 2001, 03:54:00 PM »
Hi, I have a 1986 C10. It has the stock steel 15" 15x6 5 lug wheels on it now. I want to find a used set of aluminum alloys for the truck. I am going to stay with the 15" 5 lug but need to know if I am stuck finding 15x6 or are there any other options? Thanks in advance, Steve

Steve, your truck will comfortably take a 15x8 with a 275-60 without any special rim offsets or anything to keep it under the fenders. You can go with a 15x10 but just about any wheel readily available will stick out from the sides with a decent tire. Just my "personal" opinion gives a two thumbs up to a set of 15x8's, a set of 275's and a decent drop front and rear. Keep it simple and clean.... like my "fishin' truck..... good luck, Bill

Sorry, My site is unavailable from timeto time since it gets too much traffic and GeoShi*ties shuts it down, try it again and it should work. :)

The 86 C-10 SWB I just bought has 295/50R15 tires on either 15-8 or 15-10 wheels.

I got 15x10 on my 70 and they dont stick out at all, When I ordered them they asked what truck I had, and they made them line up with fenders perfect!
I got smoothies from prime rims for less than $100 a rim!
