Question Wheels for a 1967-72 Chevy Pickup

I'm new to the Bulletin Board, but I have browsed them frequently, and they are a great source of info.

If my assumptions are wrong, please let me know.

I'm working on a 1968 Chevy C10 Pickup. It's slow-going, but I'm getting there. The question I have is about the wheels for that particular truck. It has the 6-lug pattern, which I believe went away after the 1967-72 model pickup, and has resurfaced recently in the late 90s, which makes for slim-pickings.

I'm trying to take the semi-cheap route on this and put some factory alloy wheels on, but because GM 6-lug wheels are hard to come by, I was wondering if any of the import vehicles that use 6-lug (Isuzu, Nissan, Toyota, etc.) would fit, and more importantly, provide enough backspacing. I saw a 64 Chevy truck the other day, with the same 6-lug setup, but the wheels were from an older Isuzu vehicle, and they seemed to work pretty well, which got me thinking.

I tried on some 2002 Silverado wheels, and the backspacing was too much. The wheels sat way too far in, giving it a pigeon-toed stance.

In the end, I might just have to fork out the cash on some new wheels, but I'd rather not.

Thanking you in advance,

68Chevy Man

There are some nice looking steel wheels out there and 6 lug is fairly common in pickup country..I think the toyota wheels would fit but then there is always the backspace deal ....????

Getting by one the cheap requires one to be a bit creative..
I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
