Be carefull that you get the correct off set also. The bolt pattern is 5 on 4 3/4 with extra large lugs.
You may have a problem finding what you want. What size are you looking for, and what sort of wheeling do you do if any?

Bolt pattern is actually 5x120mm ... which is about 5x4.72, but you'll find a close match at 5x4.75. As mike said, you may have a problem finding what you're looking for as not many people make rims in the bolt pattern we have.. I heard that some old Camaros and newer BMW suv's share the same bolt pattern... other than that its hard to find much.

That should be an easy find(sarcasm)! I am looking for something with a more offroad look than the rims I have now! I would like to stay with the 16" rims! Does anyone know where you can find rims that will fit, or am I going to have to look long and hard?

You are right, I stand corrected.
The other issue also is geting the correct size lug nuts to work on after market wheels.

Lug nut thread size is 14x1.5mm. Common on stuff like the late model F-series Ford trucks.

Tons of Chevy rims to chose from that are 5x4.750" bolt pattern. Also 16" s-series blazer's, jimmy's, Astro's and Safari wheels will fit, and share almost identical offset values. (15" won't clear the brake caliper)

Yes, some mid 90's to current BMW wheels have 5x120mm. As you can see on my truck

Anybody out there running Chevy or other standard pattern (ie: non-metric, 5x4.75) wheels? I would be curious to see pictures.

I would like to get a 2nd set, if I could find some steel wheels in 4.25 backspacing that weren't too expensive...

I've heard about the Camaro & Chevy truck wheels, but never actually seen anyone run 4.75. Some machining/widening to ensure the lug studs fit?

These wheels are the 5x4.75 pattern at 4 Wheel Parts.

Interesting. What modifications did you have to make to the wheel for it to fit?

None as far as I know.. thats not my truck.. I actually have the same steelies at home though, havent mounted them yet though... but I think it was just a straight bolt up.. the little bit of difference in bolt pattern didn't matter too much.

I personally like the stock alloys a bit better though.. hubcentric, big bead for good retention, strong alloy, lighter, etc.. ive taken some hard hits to them too, theyve never cracked, just got dents/chips in them

I really like the stock alloys too... but the backspacing is horrible.... too narrow a stance w/ more lift & bigger tires. Otherwise I would run them gladly (especially for the weight differential vs. steel,,). I don't want to use spacers, so I'm stuck w/ steel for the time being.

I'm actually looking closer and closer at the spacers.. they are a little more money but they (at least 4x4ags) retain the hubcentric design to them so they will be on there pretty stout.. and the nice thing is, if they do push the tires past the fender flares, I can always take them off for inspection here [failed my jeep b/c of the backspacing].

Sorry to bump this back up but I just want to fill in a bit of information. We picked up a set of the Cragar Soft-8s for our '04 Disco and found that the lug holes were too small. All other dimensions seem to fit fine. We're currently looking into how safe it would be to have the holes enlarged.
