help- Will 1995 4x4 gmc alum rims fit 1985 4x4?

Will a set of 6 bolt rims from a 1995 z71 4x4 fit on a 1984 or 85 full sized
blazer ? The hubs stick out on the 84/85 -would they fit through the 95 rims? or?

Any help appreciated- I have a set from my 95 to give a freind with a 85 or so -just wondered if they'd work?

yes and no
the bolt pattern is the same,its the center hole that is smaller on the z71
if they are factory rims no,aftermarket rims will fit if they have a large hole which is ~4+ inches
and watch out for the back spacing

but then he'd have to post pics, then ask someone what the little lines ment between the number thingies and if he could get an opinion... besides, would he need a US tape mesure, or a metric one? and that little thingee on the end isn't staked down very well and he'd have to set the rivet tighter to keep it from sliding back and forth, then he'd have to go thru the instructions, pictures, and all that with his friend that lives hours and hours away, and...

and...

I'm sure you know and are just being sarcastic...but you do realize that slop in the end of a tape measure is on purpose, right?

I got the same problem. I got 3-4 sets of the factory mid 90's z71 rims but they wont fit the straight axle front ends. I got a 90 K5 blazer that im trying to find a set of 16" rims to put some boggers on. Cant find a good cheap set anywhere. Tried CL for the past two weeks and after about 25 different cities i give up. Gonna put them on my 96 Z and with the 4" suspension lift i just installed on it i'm going with 35 or 36's on 15 inch rims. Good luck finding rims as 15" are plentiful and 16"s well i wish you better luck than i did.

I've been told that it had something to do with making up for the thickness of the hook for inside vs outside measuring, but I think they were pulling my leg!

No sir, your leg is free from any pulling. That's exactly what it's for.

someone gave me a set of aftermarkets off a late 90s suburban, the center hole was big enough but it had like zero backspacing and they hit the tie rods in the front

Zero backspace would mean that the back edge of the rim would
be even with the mounting face ( backside of lug holes ) I doubt
that there would be a tie rod interference issue.

Zero offset would meant that the mounting face is in the center.
offset is measured in mm, either positive(towards front of rim) or
negative,( towards backside of rim. )
( example; 8" rim with zero offset would have 4" of backspace )
