20" chevy wheels on my Hardbody?
 
Ok so i found this set of 20" chevy wheels on CL for a great price. I have a few questions, will i have to do anything to the wheel to allow it to fit like the TItan wheels where you have to bore it out 4"? I am stock height, planning on doing a 3/3 drop, will i have to do anything besides the normal pathy fenders up front and rolling fenders out back. The wheels are really nice looking so i'd like to put them on if possible. Thanks -Ted

Heres a pick of them

Yes you will have to bore them out. Honestly I'd get a 4" hole saw to bore them out. I used one on my wheels, just bore out a scrap piece of plywood first and then bolt it on the back of the wheel and that's that.

To all you people that can rewire a harness or fabricate a complete race chassis but have to pull their pants down and get charged 150 per wheel at a machine shop to bore their wheels out, this isn't to complicated and it's cheap.

Who paid $150 a wheel? Lol I paid $100 for the whole set. Can't use a hole saw on Titan wheels, there is not a large center cap to allow you to cut all the way through. Have to use a router or go to a machine shop. But you can use the hole saw method with the Chevy wheels.

oh wow thats a good idea. i can still put the lug nut cover back over even with the center cut out?

Hardbody92 02-26-2016 10:00 PM

Here's what you got to do: 1).set the 4" hole saw over the center of the wheel, center it about where you think it's centered.
2).Using a sharpie mark the outline of the hole saw, remove the hole saw and see if the gap from the 3" O.E bore looks even all the way around from the outline you drew using the hole saw.
3). If the line looks off a bit erase it using acetone or lacquer thinner
4). Use automatic fluid in a empty mustard bottle to lubricate the cutter as you cut away!

Oh boy:facepalm: your not going to able to do this
And to answer your question, YES you can still put the cover over the center like normal

I actually found these Police Tahoe wheels locally for $100! I picked em up yesterday, wondering about what size tire i can run up front. like i said im planning on a 3 inch drop, so would a 225/40 or 235/40 work without rubbing (In the front)?

LongBedTed 02-27-2016 01:01 PM

They are 18x8

You sure? I thought that style wheel was a 17...

LongBedTed 02-28-2016 05:00 PM

Oh are they? I better make sure... That's just what the guy said and I haven't actually measured them. Lol I will when I get home from work. That's good to know because I was just about to start looking at tires...

I'm pretty sure they are 17"

LongBedTed 02-29-2016 12:22 AM

Well i guess it would be smart to know more about what i am buying before i make the purchase.. So correct measurements are 17x7.5's. Boy was i wrong.. Thank you Gordo and HB92 for correcting me! i will be taking the wheels to a shop hopefully tomorrow. i doubt they will be expensive to cut i 4" hole.. Plus the guy has done engine work for my datsun, so he should hook me up :thumb:

Too much tire for the look i was going for, but i wont be lowering the truck for another couple months, so i got these 4 Michelin for a steal at a local used tire place.
