Default Z71 wheel question

I've got 2 Z71 wheels and am looking for 2 more. my question is, what is the offset for those wheels? I looked on the inside of the ones i have and couldn't find it



I'm also looking for the best tire size for these wheels that closely match my factory 225/70/15 tires on my truck now. i found a tire calculator, and came up with 225/60/16. would that be a good size?


also, what's the best way to clean them? they've got heavy duty dirt buildup on the inside and a little on the outter surface

i honestly use whatever aluminum wheel cleaner is on sale when i run out. none of them are "spray and wash away" like the bottle says. that and i use a soft lug brush...spray, let soak, spray again, scrub, rinse, done.

how heavy a dirt buildup are you talking? if they're that bad i'd soak 'em in simple green or purple power....

tire size would make your speed-o read to fast. i would think about going 235/60r16, so it makes your speed-o read slow...i have a smaller combo on my fro, and i hate it, but thats just how i roll...

when i clean my rims, i normally just wipe clean, than rewipe again(cause nobody like swass)if yours rims are caked up, i would get some rim cleaner, hit the local power washer...spray the crap on....wait...than blast the crap off....you also might have to do a little scrubbing like rocks mention

and what the actually size of the rim 16X??? are you worried about tucking them in the furture?

the wheels are 16x7. not really worried about tucking since they are just something to put on for now.

here's what the back side looks like. the one on the right is the one that needs serious cleaning. the other one looks great.




the front of the wheels are in great shape, just need to polish them up a bit
