Look! I found GMC rims cheap!

I managed to grab a $200 set of GMC rims for use a winters!

They're slightly corroded. Got them home and cleaning turned into polishing, polishing turned into full on resto.

Started paint stripping them and brass wheel brushing them. Will post the next steps if you guys are curious. At this rate my winters are going to look better than my summers.

If you're curious about what else I've been up to check out Instagram @85K20

Nice! Those are my favorite! Those are 200 bucks at the yards around here too. Pretty sweet!

Why these rims can't take 235 85 16's??

Ummm I'm intending to put 305 70 16's on these. Tell me that will work. ?

the rim width is/should be 6.5 inches, a 235 width tire should be able to mount on a 5.5 to 8 inch wide rim.

A 305 should be mounted at the minimum on a 8 inch wide rim.

There are various sources to determine maximum and minimum rim widths, the best place to determine if the tire will fit is the tire manufacture themselves, they will have a recommended rim width fitment.

Well major crapola. I ordered a set of 305's and these are stick 16" rims which are 6.5" wide. A quick search online gives mixed results along the lines of you'd be crazy to that that to it's fine and devil may care recklessness.

Seeing as there are already a bazillion other things that I have to watch out for it might be wise to follow the rules so I don't have to be concerned about breaking a bead.

I'd run 255/85R16's if it were me, and I do. Picture below is with about 2500 lbs of gravel in the back. I wouldnt mount much wider of a tire on these wheels. A tall skinny tire is almost too much. 265/75 was OK, but wouldnt go much bigger than that either. That's just me.

Thanks for the pic. Love the centre caps. I didn't get any with mine. Guess I'm going to have to cancel these 305's and get narrower ones.
