I did not realize you need to grind on Iroc wheels to get them to fit. I know for a fact the earlier Z28 five spokes bolt right on. I also know that you need to take off some material on second gen S truck wheels to get them to fit on first gens.

youve probably got 4 rear rims thats why it hit the tie rod at least thats what ive read.

well i'll go ahead and try to mount them on the truck but i could have sworn ive seen were guys have had problems with the centers being to tight to fit over the hub and axel. the rims i got were on a 85 el camino

Nope,IROC's fit perfectly,even the z28's from 82-92.
You just run R/F F/R on the S-Series,or all 4 fronts.

Thats odd. If they were already on an 85 El Camino then thye should go on a S10. Do you just have some rust build up on the hubs

here are mine....i am aprox. lowered 2.5 inches upfront and i needed wheel spacers for mine since the tie rod grazed the inner rim and would not get past the wieght on the inside. I have like 7/32th wheel spacers on. But i would assume if i lowered the truck a bit more it would not need thespacers anymore. But anyways , heres the pics....

same ones i have, mine bolted right on. the zq8's and xtreme wheels were the only ones i thought you had to grind down.

what drop do you have upfront? I personally hate how mine is, the front wheel sticks out too much vs. the rear and i dont like running spacers anyways
