S10/S15 wheels same bolt pattern same as 73 chevelle malibu?

Post by fishhead on Thu Dec 18, 2014 2:44 am

I saw a great looking set of custom wheels/tires today on a S10 or S15 (damn these eyes it was too far and in motion to be sure).Do all models of those little trucks have the same small bolt pattern as the 73 malibu?

Thank you.I wish I had chased the guy down to get info on his tires because they had that beefy look and width I love with the white letters.All 4 tires were wide like a 70's custom van would have back in the day with deep dish wheels.I'm guessing they were Hankook or Cooper Cobras.I'm just not into freakishly large tires and wheels that look like a chromed-out wagon wheel.

As long as the S10 / S15 is NOT 4 x 4 the wheels are a direct fit ......

Thanks guys.It's looking like light truck tires might be the ticket to getting the old school look for my '73 malibu.There aren't many choices now other than Coker Tire and I'm just not in that tax bracket.

I got the cooper cobras 245 on my rallys. They look pretty good and weren't too $$$.

I have seen some wheels from the later blazers that have a cool retro look to them. I saw a pic recently of them mounted on a 76 and they looked good. Kinda like the Pontiac GP wheels, but with a curve to the spokes.

Thanks for the pic.I agree those would look pretty good on a 73-77 chevelle.Especially a silver or black car.

Yep.Those look darn good for a factory wheel.That 80's malibu would look ultra-cool with a monte ss style rear spoiler and a subtle front spoiler.

Those are called zQ8 wheels,and  were available on the s-10 extreme (and Gmc's version too with different centercaps) from 2000 till 2002, here's some on my old hoopty.............




note, The centers of these wheels have to be "turned" just a little bit to fit over the rotors on an a body (or a g body)

note 2,  Those centercaps will fit directly onto 80's early 90's camaro wheels, and look insane Thumbs up

note 3, If you want to run zq8 wheels WITH the centercaps on a car older than 1981, it requires changing the wheel studs OR (this is what i did) get special conversion lugnuts with Sae thread and the external threads to hold the caps.......

The zq8s are a great looking wheel, just a shame that they are 16" and not 17" as tire selection is severely limited in 16" sizes.
