chevy wheels

I'm restoring a 65 chevy pickup. Have a set of wheels off of a 2002 Silverado. 6 lug but 16" . Can someone tell me if they will fit my 65? thanks, Carl

it would appear so, the 06 i can confirm is 6 on 5.5 and it looks like chevy/gmc has always used that pattern

Check the wheels to see if they use a regular tapered seat lug or a bulge seat and get the lug nuts to match.

Probably gonna tuck the wheels too far in----may have some steering component clearance issues.

The stock backspacing on the old trucks would be about 3-1/2"

I think the newer wheels is quite a bit more than that.

As Bryan said, may cause a problem.
The older Trucks used 0 Offset, the newer use 20mm +Offset. So the wheels will be tucked in 20mm more. Also check the Center Bore.

I'm not sure I totally trust that wheel chart... I just looked at the listing for my '94 Impala SS and they show it as '94-'97 (there is no 97 Impala SS) and the list the stock wheels as 16 x 8 (they're really 17 x 8). I haven't checked any of the other listings.
