Hey guys. looking to upgrade my wheels on my 94 c1500 lb. It now has 15 inch, but want to go to 16 inch Aluminum with 5 lug holes. Am currently running
255 70r 15 tires. But are getting harder to find good ones. So I am going to switch to 16" for better selection--any suggestions appreciated. I live near High Point or Greensboro NC. Haven't had much luck in my search so far--thanks for any tips.

Dave, I didn't know 255/70R15's were getting scarce. That's the size I ran on our 96 Tahoe, and I still have on the back of my 66 Chevelle and my 56 210. Our '01 Tahoe has 16" wheels, but they are 6 lug. Just bought 4 new 265/70R16 tires for it Wednesday. Good luck with the search.

tires & wheels

Yeah, the shop I deal with for tires for years say the 15's are phasing out for selection. So, I am opting for 16" and 8" wide rims that will give me the verstality of using a 255 or wider tire. If i go 10s then I can only use wider tires.
This way I get best of both. Just have to find 16" rims with 5 lug pattern-if you run across anything let me know.
thanks, dave
