    Hi Styvturbo, welcome to the GM truck club.
    This is going to be something that you are going to have to figure out yourself because you say you don't want the tires outside of the fenders. This is going to be a compromise between wheel backspaceing to keep your wheels/tires away from brake calipers & the upper controll arm ball joint, & also keeping the tire/wheel inside the fenders. Get your tape measure out & start measuring the clearances before you decide on what wheels you want & what backspacing is the optimum to accomplish this.


    Wheels SizeTire SizeModification16x8235/70R16, 245/75R16, 265/70R16, 265/75R16, 285/75R16, 295/75R16, 305/70R16, 315/75R16No modification is necessary for tire sizes up to 265/75R16. No modification is necessary for 285/75R16 unless the wheel has a backspace of less than 4 1/2".

    You are correct Normal. "Mags" is a misnomer from the '60's when they were using true magnesium wheels on race cars. The "street wheel manufacturers" started putting out wheels that had the same appearance as the true mag wheels, & started calling them mags, but they were made from A-6 aluminum. Very few of the true race mags ever made it to the streets, except for the sets that the Unsers, the A.J.s' & others redrilled to fit their tow rigs lol.
