Aside from suburbans astrovans and other chevy trucks. Are there any other makes and models that have the same lug pattern and spacing. My rims were stolen and I am sittin on 4 spares. I am looking on ebay and craigslist but 5 lug chevy rims are not easy to find these days. It is all just 6 and 8 lug. I cant afford new rims and I cant afford to swap out axel and hubs to make the 6 lugs fit. So what are my options. I heard toyota and jeep from a buddy of mine who used to work at discount tire. I got some rims off of a blazer but they were too small so I had to end up giving them away. If any one has a list of cars and trucks that would fit the same rims I would certainly appreciate it.

Any one know how difficult it would be to convert to the 6 lug?

The dimensions for the 5 lug GM truck hub is 5 X 127mm, or 5 X 5". This is the same dimension used on full size GM sedans equipped with heavy duty suspension up through '96 and most station wagons. This opens up some options for you since the 5 X 5" pattern was used on the '94 - '96 Impala SS. I've got a friend running a set of the 17" Impala rims on his '95 shortbed. Conversely, I occasionally see a mid 70s Pontiac Catalina on my way to work wearing a set of mid 90s Chevy truck alloys. Another useful tip is that the mid 90s Caprice cop cars sometimes ran black steel 15" wheels with round holes around the outside perimeter. Those wheels use chrome 3 bolt center caps that bolt right onto the late 70s/early 80s Chevy truck 15" rally rim. They also fit the GM 15" aluminum 8 hole truck wheel from around '86 or '87. Those cop wheels don't show up all that often, but I found a full set of those caps on a Caprice in a wrecking yard and have them on my half ton. Hope this helps.

This thread is 6 years old. Those guys are still listed as new members so they're not active so won't even see your post.

If the post above yours didn't help then check with one of the used wheel and hubcap sellers. Every town seems to have at least one.

They make spacer plates to convert from 5-lug to 6-lug. Only run about $100 on Ebay.
Here are other vehicles that have the same 5x5 / 5x127mm bolt pattern. The last number is the lug nut size. Best to get the same size but others may work.
