    Default Chevy/Toyota 6 lug wheels really the same?

    I've seen several after market wheel sets for sale with the claim that they will fit Chevy or Toyota. Is this true or is there a big "BUT" or "IF" somewhere I should know about? Thanks.

    They have the same lug pattern, so they could possibly fit. You still have to make sure due to brake calipers and the offsett of the rims, backspacing, etc..

    Main difference is center bore size. Toyota's need a larger center bore, many Chevy rims won't fit a Toyota for the simple reason the center bore on the wheel is too small.

    Center bore does not matter if the rims are lug centric...I've run Toyota bore and Dana bore, the Ivan Stewart rims are a different bore than the OEM alloys IIRC, and so on...since our trucks use ADD, and a FWD style hub, there's nothing sticking out of the upright that a wheel needs to clear except the centering cone and that will depend on what wheel you're using. Same in the rear...if it's lug centric, it doesn't matter as long as the pattern is correct.

    As long as the pattern is 6 on 5.5" (or metric measurement 6 on 139.7), AND the valley between the mating surface and shell is deep enough to clear our calipers (roughly 3/4"), it will fit. Which OEM it was made for does not matter.

    Most stamped steel rims DON'T fit because the center isn't dished enough to clear the caliper, but most aluminum rims DO fit. If you get lug-centric you don't have to deal with the centering cone, frankly it's a lot easier than the hub-centric OEM setup.

    I have been using rims which are "technically" for Chevy bolt pattern for the last...oh...seven years, and recently got another set with the same spec. Ya don't think Toyota planned it that way, do ya ?

    As an example, I have a set of BOSS eagle alloys 18" with toyo proxes 285/60R-18 tires.
    Knowing that the bolt pattern was the same, I put one of the BOSS wheels on just to see if it cleared hub opening, fit over brakes etc... Well it did appear to fit. But to be sure I took to a Belle tire dealer and had them fit them. I was right. They will fit. So until you can "try on" a set of wheels, don't rule them out.

    My buddies 38" swampers from his panel Wagoneer fit my Tundra and mine fit his. Except for the fact I cannot turn his wheel/tire on my truck, the shoe fits though

    If they're MT Classic II's they should fit. Most people here get their 16x8's in a "Chevy" backspacing,it fills the wheelwells better than the backspacing MT recommends for Tundras.

    the bolt patterent is the same, ALL toyota wheels will fit on a chevy, BUT not all chevy wheels will fit on a toyota, if they are hub centric to a chevy they wont fit a toyota, basically you have to try the wheel on,

    IF THE WHEEL SAYS "BOLT PATTEREN, 6X5.5 AND ITS HUBCENTRIC IT WILL NOT FIT, ITS DESIGNED FOR A CHEVY, GET THE ONE THAT ISNT HUBCENTRIC
