6 lug GMC wheels fit Toyota? #512466

I'm trashing my old GMC's steel wagon wheel style wheels. They are 6 lug with large center hole.

Not counting off set, will these things fit my Toy?

I guess I could go jack it up and test fit, but why bother if you guys know the answer.

They should be the same bolt pattern, just have to check out the center hole and make sure it's big enough.

They're the same bolt pattern, however, Toyota uses a hub-centric design. The center of a Toyota wheel carries some of the weight by being almost a press fit on the hub. Using a lug-centric wheel puts all the weight on the...lugs. I've read where some guys will machine a sleeve to go on the hub to make up the difference in size. I've never had a problem with lugs snapping off, so I just let it ride.

Thanks!

Looks like I finally have a spare set of wheels for those really big tires I want for xmass. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

Actually, Toyota wheels are lug-centric. That's why you often have trouble with wheel balance if the shop uses the more common hub-centric baancer.

Yep, we covered that several months ago...I think it was me that explained it then and posted a linky about it.

But I've slept since then, so I can't be sure. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Basically, if your wheel has lug stud holes that have a flared crosss section and need flared lug nuts, then they are lug-centric and center properly when the lugs are tightened. Those type wheels should not fit tight over the hub.

If the stud holes aren't flared, then they should fit real tight on the hubs and use a different kinda lug nut.

Lug-centric wheels need to be balanced by a shop that has the proper adapters or they will bounce and wobble.

Centric means "at the center" ,the hub is used to center the wheel. This makes for a truer balance.

My Toyotas came with factory alloy wheels, all of them where almost a press fit on the hub. I've bought aftermarket wheels that are much looser around the hub.

I am aware of the meaning of lug- vs. hub-centric. My stock steel wheels (1st gen, solid axle) are a loose fit on the hubs, front and rear. This page confirms the lug-centric wheels ont he 3rd gens. I've never used any 2nd gen alloy wheels, so perhaps they are hub-centric on the 2nd gens.

I purchased some GM rally rims w/ beauty rings / center caps and tires for $40, and they won't fit my truck because the Toyota hub is larger than the GM hub. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/angry.gif" alt="" />

Its usually the factory wheels (GM, Chevy, etc.) that have problems fitting because of the too-small ID on the center hole. Most of the aftermarket rims have larger ID holes so fit fine. You could have a machine shop turn the center holes larger if needed.
