Hello,

I'm trying to fit up some 19x8.5" Cadillac XLR-V wheels to my 97 S-10 SS. The trucks dropped 2"/3" in addition to the ZQ8 suspension with spindles/blocks. The Caddy wheels are the correct 5x4.75" pattern but have a backspace of 7.25". The tire sizes are P235/45R19 fronts and P255/40R19 rears. The biggest wheel adapter I can find is 2.5" which would give me a total backspace of 4.75" all around. Will these fit ok with this backspace?

Thanks,

Rob

Sick, ya these are the 19's off the V. Some rich guy bought a set of aftermarket wheels for his brand new XLRV and told the shop that put them on to sell the old ones for him, so I picked up the set with next to zero mileage on them for really cheap. They look like this;

I'll post a pic or two as soon as I get them on. Ordered the spacers last Friday from EGAY so hopefully they show up midweek.

Here we go, spacers finally arrived last week. They rub near full lock and rub the tops of the fender wells over big bumps but nothing too major. I kinda like em, they're different anyways.

Thanks, ya they really do look big, might be more proportionate on an extended cab. They're really growing on me though.
