Hey guys, I have an alternative solution to throw at ya. I drive a Suburban with the Vortec 5.7L and do not notice any lack of power. I've heard it's night and day between the Vortec and old 5.7...
Found a pic of my rims.
I love the change from stock to these and I found them pretty cheap.
As a side note to the lug pattern debate, I put the chrome 454SS rims on my Suburban and love the way it looks with 31x10.50 tires. I used to have the wheels that you have. I don't have a pic...

My '99 Suburban with the 5.7 is freakishly great, on a long trip averaging 70-73, I will get 19-20 mpg! In the city, it's drastically less at 13-14.
We just purchased our '07 Express Van with the...
