Here's my 70 K5 with the 16" split rims that were originally on my 69 K20

I've been running my slots lately, but I've been known to swap on my set of steelies at a moments notice! Boy, I can't wait to see my Blazer all one color again.

Re: Who's running steelies on their K5 - post your pics

Pulled the tires and rims off of one of my CUCV's before I sold it and put them on the '72. The centers are off of a '73 K5 that had skinny steels that I replaced for rallies. The sun fading on the rims and caps seems to fit the well used theme.

I have steel wagons on mine. This is a few years ago before I started restoring it.

Re: Who's running steelies on their K5 - post your pics

Finally got mine back from the powder coater and got the tires mounted. Need to finish painting the dog dish bowties, but at least a step in the right direction....

Very cool!! I'd also like to know the tire / wheel size combo. Lift height?

Re: Who's running steelies on their K5 - post your pics

Nice K5's everybody. Here's mine and just got the 15 x 8 steelies which took me forever to find. Had em powdercoated and love the new radials. I was running bias ply pizza cutters on the 16 x 8's that were on it before. Here's a couple before and after pics. Love all the cool pics!
