    Default possible to put newer stock wheels on older truck?

    I have a 94 chevy 1500 extende cab. I love the truck and am fixing it up. I want a different look. I like some of the stock wheels on the newer model trucks. Is it possible to get from my 5 lug to a 6 lug? Oppinions or thoughts? Just wondering if it would be too expensive or not worth the time.

    Well the problem is you would have to make major modifications of your hubs and axle and potentially your brakes as well. I believe they may make adapters but I'm unsure also don't know how well they work.

    Newer wheels will only fit on older 4x4 trucks. It would me much easier to find a set of wheels you like that fit your application.
