Wheels in 6x6.5

It seems nearly impossible to find something like this in a 6x6.5 x 16" I know they make adapters to fit other patterns, but I already have spacers, which may end up going depending on the offset. I suppose if I have to I can swap out the spacer for adapters. Anybody know of anything ? . I prefer the old school deep dish look,..dont necessarily have to be rim lock. a little black is ok,..but prefer mostly chrome. Looking to treat my ride to some bling. 1517862781239.png

The GMT360 platform uses 6x5. Full size GM trucks use 6x5.5.

Thank you for that correction.

You will find very limited 16 inch offerings in the 6x5 pattern. Even less in the style you want. Most are the flatter bigger diameter style and not so offroad looking.

When I was looking at wheels the issue I kept finding is by the time you use the adapters you're still almost stuck with a flatter-faced (positive offset) wheel because the closer to zero offset you get the more the wheel sticks out. Stock offset with a 1.5" spacer/adapter puts the wheel just flush with the fender, which looks really good IMO, but anything beyond that starts sticking out and can start looking goofy very quickly if you're not also lifted a fair bit with wider tires. And the further out you go, the more the wheel will swing when turning, which means you'll need more trimming to not rub stuff. Of course, some people like that look, so that's up to you. Personally, I hate it. Saw a TB with near stock size tires with 0 offset "old school" wheels on adapters and I thought it looked stupid. But, you know what opinions are like :tongue:

It is definitely to each their own. I hate lifted anything with wheels tucked under. All suv and trucks need a bit of tire hanging out to me. I love wide stances of a couple extra inches and abuse the benefits of it personally.

Cant stand the stretched tires nor having 3/4 of the tire outside the body, but dont like not having a poke of rubber out there.

But stock diameter with stock height vehicle and half the tire hanging out looks... well, bizarre.

Has to be lifted and larger than stock to look ok sticking out, IMO.

Half the tire stock is silly, but it needs to be a bit over flush. Even lowered needs to be squared off to fenders like so

Really like a stance like this with stock suspension. Clean n square

Agreed,.. either flush or better yet an inch or two out .
I just dont like when the 'dish' of the wheel is out too far,....hub needs to be set back,,..maybe thats an old school look,..but then again im old...
