4x4 suburban wheel offsets

I'm picking up an 88 suburban 4x4, and am looking to find a set of inexpensive 16" wheels and 285/75R16's for it. the stock wheels appear to be tucked under the truck, and I would prefer them closer to the edge of the wheel wells. anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks-

Eric

Re: 4x4 suburban wheel offsets

What backspacing do you have? When you say inexpensive ....well how much and what kind?.....any pics of what you've got?

I'm not sure what the current backspacing is. I was planning on some steel wagon wheels, they're cheap, and I like the look. I currently have what looks like stock aluminum 8 hole wheels, but I'm not sure if they are stock or not. I'm picking the truck up tomorrow or Sunday, running boards are coming off asap. I might throw 2" lift on it, but I plan on keeping it stock and just driving it.

Re: 4x4 suburban wheel offsets

You need a set of aluminum rims from say a '02 2500HD truck like my Duramax 2500. They can be found in nice shape for $250 - $400.
Mine are 16"
Never mind... you said 8 hole wheels but you got 6 hole wheels!
Silly Me!

Re: 4x4 suburban wheel offsets

Those wheels look kinda like maybe 4in backspacing...to move the wheel out you'll need something with less bs....or go to a wider wheel and tire.....it's looks spaced about the same as the burb I just parted out...
Although I don't and won't use wheel spacers some people have no issue running them....just a idea...

Re: 4x4 suburban wheel offsets

If you still have the running boards, I would be interested in them!
