Bolt Pattern for S-10's

ALL S-10's have a bolt pattern of 5x4.75" or 120.7 in MM

not that one tenth of a mm really matters, but it is 120.6 not 120.7. at least according to my computer system at work (Discount Tire)

Re: Bolt Pattern for S-10's

LOL, When I dealt with Discount when I was with ARE they always said that too. But everyone else said 120.7, even other wheel companies

The reason being is because the actual measurement is 120.65mm. Most places round it up to 120.7mm, but if you follow the old math class rule, it can be rounded down if it is not followed by another decimal place (i.e. 120.61)

But hey, like we care anywayz when we're talking about hangin' a set of plums off the ride that are alsmost 2-feet wide..

Re: Bolt Pattern for S-10's

yeah, I checked our system again, and it says 120.65 if you select a particular wheel. but what the hell, our trucks have a US bolt pattern, not metric! my rears are in, my fronts should be here tomorrow! there not 2 feet wide, but they are 10 inches!

Re: Bolt Pattern for S-10's

oh. i thought you were asking if it was 5x4.75 or5x120.7. sorry for misunderstanding. as far as the bolt pattern on the 'hoe, i'm not sure. is it 2wd or 4wd?

Re: Bolt Pattern for S-10's

hey guys, got a 2001 olds bravada (awd) im wondering if there is a bearing & hub assembly available with a 6 bolt pattern that will mate with my front knuckle and drive axle. if so what do i do for the rear? im just curious, as it seems that most wheels i like are 6bolts, and if im gonna spend some loot id like a set that will travel to my next truck as well. know i've been hearing 'get adapters' but thats not what im looking for. i might settle for the adapter option in the rear but up front i'd prefer a good NAME brand hub assembly w/ 6 bolt, if it exists. thanks everyone

Re: Bolt Pattern for S-10's

Being that I'm not into blingin chrome wheels, it's hard to find rims that I like. I was wondering if a wheel with the 5x120 bolt pattern would bolt on our trucks. Does the extra .7 make a big difference? Thanks

Re: Bolt Pattern for S-10's

Yeah it'll bolt up, but you have to get adapters to compensate for backspacing issues, thats what I did

Re: Bolt Pattern for S-10's

if you ask me s10freak those prices on those wheel and tire packages seem a little on the high side and after all that you still have to pay for shipping try your local wheel shops or ebay

Re: Bolt Pattern for S-10's

With everyone so hyped on asking a whole lot of the same questions about offset and bolt pattern. And yes, ALL s-10's, s-15's, Sonoma's, blazers, Jimmy's from 82-03 are the same, 5x4.75"
Stock wheels were either 14" or 15"x7" with a 4" backspace unless they were 4x4. All 4x4's have a wider track and use a positive offset.....

.....lead me to point out one thing that I have not read in this thread yet. When you lower your truck with coils, you will pick up a small amount width in the track of the front end just from the goemetry of the control arms. If you use drop spindles, you will actually increase the front track width by 1/2". This is a really good thing to keep in mind if you are looking to stuff a big set of aftermarket wheels under the front end. It doesn't sound like a lot, but an extra 1/4" per side makes the difference from tucking inside the fender lip and creasing the fenders on the first bump. You can always add a spacer to bring your wheel outward, but you can't go the other way....

Keep in mind too when everyone is saying 4.5" backspacing, 4.5" backspacing....this only holds true for a wheel width up to 8". Try it with an 8.5" rim and you're back into the fender lip again. Once you hit the 18" and above rim sizes, you can virtually run any backspace you want (larger than 4.5") but then you start to limit your turning radius. A wheel that is 18" or larger has the ability to place the steering knuckle (where your tie rod meets the spindle) inside the rim.

Isn't all this wheel fitment stuff great? I'm sure there's probably some 2-year course on it out there somewhere..lol

Cool Re: Bolt Pattern for S-10's

Hi,

I put some BMW rimz on my S10. They┬┤re from the 745; size is 19"
The only problem is, my front is already "low" without a motor and they don┬┤t make those wheels in 18"

Chris

Re: Bolt Pattern for S-10's

I'm a COMPLETE noob when it comes to rims and their sizing.

I am looking at getting ADR Sterling Rims and their closest size is an 18x8.5 120mm with a 15mm offset.

Will these work without adapters/spacers?

If not, what offset do I need for a proper fitting wheel?

I dig those 7 Series wheels, they dont make them any smaller from what I've been told.
