looking for 16" 5 on 5 rims

Really I'm trying to get snow tires. The options in 15" have pretty much dried up. But many good snow tires are still made in 16". I was looking at a reference book at the tire store and it listed a 16" 5 on 5 rim as an OEM option on '88 to '98 GM 1500 series trucks. So that's what I'm looking for. However, none of the junk yards around me have any and most claim there's no such thing. Any help appreciated.

I'm pretty sure a fair number of Jeep OEM wheels are 16", 5x5, however I believe you'll run into backspacing and hub-bore issues...

I'm not sure if you're talking about wheels or tires being available. Here is a wheel chart that may help you out. And too FYI Chevrolet truck rally wheels are available in 15 inch from Jeg's & Summit. 15x7, 15x8 & 15x10. All have a 4 inch back space. https://www.roadkillcustoms.com/whee...oss-reference/

If you already have 15" winter rims expand your search. 235 is a truck/suv size and you will find a different selection than the car tires. The bonus is a stiffer sidewall that improves handling. Forum members say this was stock size on some wagons. There are many tire size calculators on line that will compare speed and tire dimensions.


I find much more selection in 215 and 235. Your tire shop should know this.

Yeah, I read that and just did a brain dump. My car came with 235/70 R 15s. That size may be a little closer to a 215/75 and not make a real difference in the speedometer. As you said there are sites with the calculator to find the speed difference.

The 2000 Tahoe Limited (GMT420) came with 16" wheels. Tough to find those wheels these days.

I've made the heretical decision to use 235/75R15 tires, OEM on Cadillac Fleetwood V4U limos, GMT400 Chevy C/K & GMC Sierra light duty pickup trucks, Tahoes, Yukons, Suburbans, and countless 1971-1995 Chevy & GMC vans.
Of all the tire sizes that ever came on B- & D- bodies, only 235/75R15 has a decent selection of tires left (maybe because of all the other vehicles that used them).
BridgeStone Blizzak DMV2 is a damn good snow tire, but it's only available in 235/75R15.
