Default Rim swap question s10-k5

im looking at getting an 82 k5 blazer. it has 35" mickey thompsons on it. i want to save those for the dirt and sand as much as possible. my dilema is i have an automotive tech class that lets us bring our vehicles in and work on them. i drive about 50 miles a day between class and work. so my plan is to get a spare set of rims and road tires. im wondering if the newer 2nd gen s10 5 bolt rims would work. i dont know how many lugs the k5s have to if i knew that would be an easy answer. if they will not or if you guys got a better idea let me know.
thanks

Im pretty sure that the bolt patterns are different. But not 100%. The newer 6 lugs will fit on the k5s but that hole needs to be enlarged in the center

Newer like 86+ which is when GM changed to the IFS front suspension on the 4wd pickups.

Ever heard of wikipedia or google for that matter? It would really cut down on some of these questions.

besides that won't fit either. the S10's use the smaller "car" platform bolt pattern. the K5's have the large bolt pattern found on all of the "real" trucks.

That response was based off of the posting habits the OP has displayed recently. If looked at in this thread alone, it definitely can be taken the wrong way.

I understand what you are saying, but K5 information is ALL over the place. Correct or not, educating yourself allows you ask better, more meaningful questions rather than just asking the simplest of questions (and often very vague) followed up with more simple questions or even more vague information. If you don't know what it is you are asking the questions about, it makes it more difficult for those of us to answer.

And at the very least, know what it is you are asking the question about. The OP isn't even sure that it is a 4wd truck he's asking all of these questions about...
