Some parts are stock, some aren't and most folks won't know which is which? Like I said daily driver as of now so doesn't need to be squeezing as much tire in there as possible, just something realistic. This means there are 5 lugs and the diameter of the circle that the lugs make up measures 127 mm or 5 inches across. I've done everything on the 6 month trail up to surgery as of now. I know this isn't enough info. Need the data to do something like this.
Cranky eh Just trying to help you pick a tire size that will work. I put 60 series tires back on it and I plan on lowering it just a little, nothing crazy. Below is a pic from the ebay page and some details. An alternative might be a set of wheels from Wheel Vintiques I rather like the 33 series myself. Anyone know what wheel and tire combo will work without rubbing? Would you believe the shipping costs more than all the items together! So he will be sending these across the Atlantic along with the rims, hubcaps, nuts, valve stems and a few other bits and pieces.
However the supplier I was talking to has come back to me and as we speak he is blasting and spraying a nice set of rally wheels for me. Also take off wheels don't usually bring a very big price in the states unless they are extremely rare such as the correct Ralley wheel for a 1960 Z28 Camaro with the correct codes and date codes on them. For the cranky post above. Anyway, thanks again for your reply. But I widened the bed 4 inches, mini tubbed it and rolled the fender lip. Life can only be understood backwards, but must be lived forwards.
I used the sketch to determined what backspacing was possible based on suspension interferences. Kinda thought that was what this post was about. Should I shoot for tire sizes to more closely match a 2002 pickup size or the original 63 size. I can't help on the wheels but the towing deal I can. So you could put coil overs all around and whe unloaded the air springs would not have air in them, so no additional spring rate, then when you put a load on the truck the TowPro automatically adds air to get it back to the correct ride height.

The above sketch reflects actual dimensions on the rear of my '65 C10. Those will work but they are not the proper ralley wheel for the 72. I'm pretty much flat on my back, and as soon as I can, I'll get more info for you. The 42 series is closer in appearance to the original 72 ralley wheels I believe.
I have found a set on ebay, but I need to know if these are the correct type, correct size, correct hole spacing etc. You may have to before you can post: click the register link above to proceed. I would appreciate your feedback. These trucks have been modified, used and abused. Not sure what backspacing people have used.
Well Max, here is the deal: Since you already have the wheels you are going to use you will need to tell us the backspacing. To get a close measurement of your 5 lug bolt pattern without a bolt pattern tool you should measure from the center of one lug to the outer edge of the lug furthest from it. It has 5 lug wheels. The 1972 Chevrolet C10 2wd bolt pattern is 5-127 mm. There are a massive set of alloys on her now that I just dont like. Trying to see what might fit under the fenders -or how much room is under there. When his cause succeeds however, the timid join him , for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.
Both trucks ran a 3. The best honest answer to your question is measure thrice and buy once. Once I ended up selecting the wheels, using their actual backspacing, I determined the maximum tire width. These Wheels were taken off a Brand New 2002 G-Van local Conversion Facility and have been in storage ever since Wheels are in excellent condition! If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, so my child may have peace. . .
