I'm pretty sure it is. My Blazer hasZ06 rims all around, I DO have 4x4, I DON'T have spacers, so I can't put on the front left cap, because the front axle sticks out a little. However, the wheel still fits and looks good, so I haven't bothered to get the spacers. Plus, I heard they're illegal in MD. Don't know about your state.

By the way, it looks TIGHT! I do plan to have pix in my profile soon, folks...

Don't know if you have 4WD or not, but you can't run different size rims if you do. The best you could do (if you have 4WD) is make sure the 17" tire with rim is the same height as the 18" tire with rim - otherwise your 4 wheel will bind. If you have 2WD, different sizes won't matter.

Have you tried the search function? It might take some hunting but you can usually find what you need because someone, somewhere along the line has had the same question. Give it a try .

Vette wheels sound sweet man! I think lastcoupe just aquired some chrome z28's I bet those will look killer on his truck. So when do we get to see these pics Pshycropod?

I'll be posting pix of the wheels on my truck soon. Meantime, here's what the wheel looks like before it's mounted: Bones Enterprises

I've been having trouble downloading pix from this stupid camera phone. As soon as I've fixed the problem, I'll add pix to my profile.

$350?!? NO WAY! And they're not damaged? You did luck out.

If you find the spacers, please reply with your recommendation on what to get. Thanks!
