which size rims

i am currently running 33x12.50 tires on 15x10 rims. is this an ok size rim to run on a 98 z-71? i hear of some 90-s era gm trucks running 38's on 15x12's.

Re: which size rims

12" rims will DEFINITELY wear out the front end of your truck! FAST![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]
The 10" you have are not nearly as bad, but still will also wear it out faster than the stock 6.5" or 7.5" that it came with.
For aftermarket rims 8"s are the best to your front end.

Re: which size rims

Are you sure a 15inch diameter rim will fit on a 98???? I know for Ford you need at least a 16 inch rim just to cover the brakes. Sorry but I'm not too informed on the Chevy.

Re: which size rims

15"ers with fit. only on the NBS trucks do you need 16" wheels to clear the calipers
