ive heard the same about chevys, but from what i understand the toyota wheels will go to chevys, but most chevys wont fit on toyota cuz of the brakes or something. so it may be the say with nissan. if you know the person, just test fit them.

You cant do it!!! The nissan wheels wont fit over the brakes! I have done it on my 93 4runner, and it wont work. Unless you have tiny brakes or 16 inch wheels.

The deal with the Chevy wheels (and even Jeep Wagoneer wheels) is the centerhole. Those vehicles that use Dana axles (Chevy, Jeep, later Isuzu Trooper) have hub-centric wheels, and the Dana axle hub is smaller than Toyota. The centerhole is too small to use on Toyota (and most import trucks for that matter). If you had a Bridgeport mill or a large enough lathe, or even a large, granny-geared drillpress, you could bore the centerhole bigger so the rim would fit. Then there are the ?'s about backspacing, clearing the brake calipers and tie rod ends, etc. but that's another thread.

Not saying that you guys are wrong, but I have chevy wheels on my truck right now. They fit perfect. The only real way to know if its gonna fit or not is just to try it on.

Dang, really?! I'd love to see pics of that. I wanted to try that a while ago, until I measured the center hole. Are you talking about aluminum rims? What style/year? I like the slant 5 spoke 16" 4x4 rims from the early 90's trucks. Someone should start a rim interchangeability list.

Ditto. Mine came off my friends K5 blazer but they aren't stock GM rims they are wagon wheels. I believe the Chevy Blazer/Suburban 15x8 rally wheels will fit. Does anyone know if they do? These are the wheels:

I don't see how they'd fit when 4wd toyotas have 6 lugs and those rims only have 5...

Chevy Rally wheels are 5 lug, won't fit. Nissan wheels may or may not fit.

Chevy wheels fit as long as you have the proper backspacing. If you decide to look at a chevy rim then make sure the backspacing is about 4-4.5" and it should clear without a problem.

About the nissan thing, some nissan wheels will fit. For instance the xterra wheels will fit, which is probably what I am going to get. I'm not sure why the 15" wheels would not fit if it was the same backspacing.

Sorry to embarrass you there. I couldn't resist poking a little fun at ya. I wanted to try those same rims on my truck once, but then I noticed the center hole was smaller than the toyota rims. I measured, and the Chevy center hole is too small to fit over the toyota hub. Aluminum Jeep Wagoneer rims had the same size hole as Chevy, so those wouldn't work either. Now I wonder if the use of spacers would enable the wheels to fit? I don't know if the fronts would due to a longer hub, but the rear could. I don't know how comfortable I'd feel using wheel spacers off-road.

The wagon wheel spoke rims will fit because they're aftermarket rims. Most 6 lug aftermarket rims have the larger centerhole so they're able to fit everything from Toyota to Chevy. Of course this doesn't apply to Dodge rims, since they have a smaller bolt pattern.

Spacers should work fine. I would not use spacers however unless I put in longer studs. Just my personal opinion though.

OK, I was going to order some black steel wheels from Summit this week for an '83 pickup, but they offer 2 different sizes of Center Bore Diameter. Would I need to order the 4.280 in., or the 4.250 in. ? I'm going to run 33's or 35's x12.5. What would be the advantages or disadvantages in getting 8 in or 10 in wide rims? This rig will be a daily driver/trailrig, but no rocks since I'm in MO. Thanks

Toyota uses a larger center hub, so you'll need the 4.280 in. centerhole. A narrower rim would pinch the tire beads closer together, possibly making the contact patch a little smaller on the road, and maybe allowing a little better MPG.
Now, I'm still doubting that a true Chevy wheel will fit onto a '86-'94 Toyota truck (4x4) even with spacers. The rear would probably work, but I still can't see it fitting on the front without turning the hubs down in a lathe. If anyone could post some pics, that would be AWESOME to see since I've been dreaming of doing it for years!

Aftermarket rims have a larger center hole so they will fit anything w/same lug pattern. Eliminates stocking 2 variations of the same wheel.

My stock Toy rims will fit my Isuzu but stock Isuzu rims won't fit my Toy because of the center hole size. My aftermarket rims will fit either.

Titan Rims on a 4Runner ?

On a related note: anyone know if a 17in. Nissan Titan rim will fit a 3rd Gen Runner? Both have the 6x5.5 but not sure about the backspacing or center hole diameter?

What is the best shade-tree method to enlarge the hole for the hub? (I am looking at getting some Isuzu Rodeo rims at the wreck yard) I was just thinking taking an angle grinder to it. Any thoughts?

I can't think of a simple way to enlarge the center hole that wouldn't lead to the possibility of stress risers that could bring on cracking of the wheel, once you start using it. The best method would be to have it professionally done on the proper equipment (lathe, bore), so that the finish of the bore is consistant and smooth, thus distributing forces evenly.
