    Are Toyota and Chevy 6 lug trucks both 6 x 5.5 or are they different? I found some rims on Craigslist and just wondering if they will fit.

    I also have found some chevy rims for a good deal, but the back spacing is 5in vs the 4.5in that everyone seems to run. Will these fit with this backspacing? I cant remember if more back spacing makes them stick out or stick in. Thanks.

    They won't fit, plus if you want to put 285's on the truck you at least need 4.5'' of backspace. chevy wheels will not work on our trucks.:mad:

    I always here people say that Toyota 6 lug wheels fit on Chevy vehicles, but nobody ever mentions the lug nut issue!

    For example, a Chevy Silverado uses 14 x 1.5 lug nuts. A Toyota Tacoma uses 12 x 1.5 lug nuts. (the threads don't match)

    If you use a the Chevy lug nuts on the Toyota wheels, there is too much free play inside of the wheel, because the Toyota lug nuts are 18mm (outside diameter) and the Chevy lug nuts (ones made for mag wheels) are smaller. The lug nuts won't center properly, and the wheel won't be centered.

    I can think of 3 possible options:

    1. Leave the wheels uncentered and with room for the wheel to wobble around if the lug nuts ever become loose.

    2. Remount new lug studs (12 x 1.5) on the Chevy hubs so they will accept the Toyota lug nuts.

    3. Try to find 14 x 1.5 lug nuts to fit the Chevy wheel studs that also have a 18mm outside diameter. (near impossible, I have looked "everywhere" for them!)

    What are people doing to resolve this?

    Any answers, please email me. romansten9@yahoo.com

    thanks

    You have to get Toyota lugs. Chevy and Toyota same lug pattern, but you have to get the correct lugs.

    Holy thread revival!

    Chevys and Toyotas have the exact same bolt partner, but Chevys have a smaller hub bore (78 mm vs 106 mm), so OEM Chevy wheels will not fit our trucks.
