Yes, they are a direct replacement for the stock 16" steelies. Even the hub center bore is the same, so you keep a hubcentric fit. If you want to use the factory centercaps, you'll need to get SAE thread lug nuts with external threads. The factory external thread lugnuts are metric and wont fit the studs on a squarebody. I got my SAE external thread lugnuts off eBay, and the centercaps thread on them very nicely. Beware, there are two different types of centercaps out there for those wheels. Anything from an aluminum rim will fit correctly. Steel rim centercaps will not fit unless you trim a good bit off the outside perimeter.

I've been running the wider 17" Hummer H2 rims on my Suburban for years. One of the most cost effective upgrades I've made to it.

Offset way different. 90 burb is a square body straight axle. I think offset has about 1.5-2'' difference

Thanks for replies guys,

I think I have seen pictures of square body Suburbans with this type of wheel... but not sure it is direct fit.

Unfortunately, I am not in US, so there is no wheel I can try. I have to order them and then see if they fit.

Some years ago I got cheap alloy wheels. They turned out to be Dodge Ram (I do not know what I was looking at...). Bolt pattern is the same, center bore is slightly bigger and offset is different.

I will appreciate any further info.

Thanks,
Ivo

I put the wheels on my 1990 V2500 Suburban and the bolted right on and no issues what so ever.

I run them on my ‘91 V2500 and they rub the pitman arm at near full lock due to the backspacing. A 1” spacer would negate the issue. I love how they look, just need to cut out the center of the front caps so I can clean up the look a little.
