GMC wheels for winter rims?

Just curious, has anyone ever used GMC rims for a spare set of tires? Stupid me sold my OEM TRD sport rims a while back and as it turns out i now need wheels for my 265 DuraTracs. I just bought a decent set of 285 KM2's so i'd like to run them on my Procomp 7089's.

Anyways, i have the opportunity to buy these good condition GMC wheels off a newer truck for $50 a piece. Since i'm having a hard time finding OEM Toyota wheels for a decent price i thought i might go this way instead. Especially since they'll only be used in the winter and long trips. I don't know the rim width, but looking at the GMC bolt pattern 6x5.5, i shouldn't have a problem using them then? Just want to make sure before i purchase them. Thanks!

Here's a picture of them...

I guess i should get ready for onslaught! I know its blasphemy to put chevy stuff on our trucks but i'm honestly trying to save some money for bigger and better mods. ie, lockers

You can put toyota wheels on GM trucks and suvs but not the other way around. The hubs are smaller on those wheels and they won't fit.

Thanks for the link! A great alternative for what i need and they're located in Canada too, that will probably help with shipping costs.

Just found a few guys locally listing the 17" TRD sport rims, so i put a few offers out there and we'll see what happens. Hopefully i buy them much cheaper than what i sold them originally for.
