On a Silverado... is there any difference in offset between 2wd and 4wd wheels? All I know is S10's, and they are different between the two. What about fullsize trucks? My new truck will have steel wheels on it, I'm looking at finding a set of stock alloys on Craigslist.

2005.

I've been looking on google but most results are of websites where people are asking about aftermarket wheels on lifted trucks and how far they will stick out.

Craigslist ads say that their stock wheels will fit all trucks, so maybe there is no difference from 2wd to 4wd.

on all the newer body style trucks 99-2010 the lug pattern is the same 6x5.5" on 2wd and 4wd half tons. all NBS(New Body Style/99-06) 6 lugs will fit all 2wd/4wd NBS trucks and will fit OBS(88-98) 4wd 6lug, however, OBS 4wd 6lug will not fit NBS 6lugs if i remember correctly.

I've seen plenty of OEM 20's on NBS 2wd and 4wd trucks, both lifted and lowered.

Sweeto man. Now to decide which ones I want and start looking harder.

Are you saying the NBS wheels will fit on OBS but not the other way around?

Correct, They don't clear the brakes IIRC.

You get a new ride?

Yup, 2005 4.8l 2wd.


I talked to a few people in person and learned the reason OBS 2wd wheels will not fit is because they are 5 lug. Otherwise all 6 lug wheels should fit.

Had a 1999.5 Silverado 2500 4x4with the great 6.0 liter gas that I put 141,000 miles on when I decided to upgrade to the Duramax. Bought a perfect 2004.5 2500HD Duramax RWD extended cab with only 22,000 easy miles. My mechanic said it was almost brand new and very well cared for. Well I had just bought new tires for the 99 and switched the wheels and all to the 2004. No sweat.
