Well you’re trying to put a 6 lug wheel on an 8 lug hub. So there is that.
Lmfao. Once you get that wheel close enough to go on the studs what's your plans on getting them on the studs?

8 studs into 6 holes will be fun to watch, please film it so we can watch

should be wrenching or wheeling but here I be

Christ. I should've looked closer!!!!!! That's some funny shit right there.
I literally, just now, saw the 8 lugs, and the 1/2ton 5 or 6 lug rim. I assumed it was a conversion hub! Lmfao!!!!!!!!

O.P. : weld them rims to the hubs, that'll work just had good.

8 lug Chevy wheels never fit 8x6.5 Fords and many Dodges because the hub holes for the wheels are too small.

Assuming this is not a cursed metric bolt pattern which is hub centric, to use those hubs you are going to need wheels for an older Ford 8x6.5. Personally I would measure the hubs and made sure my wheel I chose had a hub hole at least .125 bigger and used acorn nuts and if an alloy wheel had steel inserts.

Lug Nut Seat Style: Conical seat - 60 degree

Center Bore Diameter (in.): 5.15

Most older Fords have a 50/50 back spacing, how that works with your Chevy, I do not know.
