Seller states these are 16x10 5 on 5.5.

Do they fit?

What about the back spacing?

What size tire should I mount on there if i decide to get these?

1985 - 4x4 stock. 5.8L carb.

i'm no wheel expert, but they will bolt on. they are the right bolt pattern. You'll want to run a 12.50 or 13.50 or wide tire on them.

I would keep with the stockers. If you aren't lifted you may run into backspacing issues and most likely end up rubbing the hell out of the radius arms or your fenders depending on tire size. 10" is too wide to run on anything under 33's, so if you're planning on rolling on stock tires (or something not too much larger) forget it.

Remember everything you do as an action, always has a re-action. So you grab wider rims, now you need larger tires. Now that you have larger tires you need a lift and gears.

You can fit 35x12.5's on your stock rims, and I'd spend the extra money on tires before I blew money on rims for sure. You're only paying for extra width, which It'd be doubtful that you went with a tire too wide for your stockers. I mean if you have the money to spend, go for it. But remember you cant just buy and rims and tires and expect everything to work together.

Looks like the wheels mine came with are off a Chevy ... LOL.

Anything will look better than those.

Plus only the front 2 tires are the same size, but they are not even the same tread. So they need to all get swapped out fast.

Yea I agree, IMO I would go with 8" wide wheels, and go with a 255/75/16 tire, which is about a 31x10. It'll look a little bit more aggressive, but you won't have to worry about tire rub since you won't have a lift kit.

As stated above, measure the center of your wheels and then the center of those to make sue they fit over the hubs.

At least the wheels you have now fit...

The problem is finding tires!

Found some used ones, but they weren't worth crap so I returned them.

Anyone selling some?
