90's 6 Bolt Rally Wheels on an '87 Suburban?

I am having a hard time finding 15" tires for my stock rally rims on my 1987 Suburban 1/2ton 4x4. I was wondering about finding some 16" rally rims from a 1990's 4x4. Would they fit, or is the backspacing too far off? Is anybody running 1990's 6 bolt rally's on there square? Let me know

I don't know abut the backspacing but I know 15's are still everywhere. You can get 15" Goodyears at Walmart any day of the week.

The rims you are referring to won't fit over your front hubs.

and the backspace is deeper = sucked in tire under the body more .

and yes 15" tires are still out there .

I am looking for a used set of 35x12.5x15s, there are like none around here that are any good. We donít have the big market here in Canada that you guys have in the States. I talked to a guy at a used tire shop this weekend and he hasnít had any of those in stock for three years. I donít want/need new tires for my beater truck, so Iím looking for an alternative that will look stock.
