What size are my stock rims?

I have a 2003 Silverado Ext Cab Z71 4x4 with stock 16 rims and 6 bolt pattern. Does anyone know what the bolt pattern spacing is along with the stock backspacing?

I want to order some aftermarket rims to go on with my lift kit (Super Lift) which will accept my stock rims size. BUt I know the stockers won't accept 35s. So what size do I need I'm think 16x8 but what should the backspacing and bolt patern be??

6 on 5.5"

Not sure about the stock BS on those newer trucks. The classic style was 5.5" IIRC.

16x8s make a nice smooth upgrade. Keep the BS over 4". Otherwise, when you go to larger tires you'll get the fender or air dam eating the tread.

Ok, all my recollecting is 99% based on the 88-98 trucks, I never got into the 99+ because, well, I didn't have one. So take my info with a grain of salt.
