View Full Version : Joe Gibbs wheels on a 99 2dr 2wd questions
04-29-2012, 04:34 PM
I am wanting to put a set of JG 20's on my tahoe. I have been researching the conversion for 6 lugs but am kinda confused about a few things. If I am understanding things correctly, The newer wheels will have a deeper backspace so adapters will work and push the wheels out for a better look. I am ok with spacers for a short term fix but will do the conversion. I would like to start gathering parts to do the 6 bolt swap. The tahoe is at stock height but will get a drop soon. I would like to go 5/7 and 275/40-20 tires. what issues will I have with track width. Wider rear axle and no spacers? Will i still need some type of spacer on the front. What are your guys thoughts on this. Thanks JRM

I have read over that many times. HOW to do the conversion is not my question. My question is regarding back space. If I simply convert the bolt pattern(step by step) then wont the wheels be tucked way in. Changing the rear axle with a wider one will fix the back but spacers are the only thing that will help the front, or belltech drop spindles may push them out a little???not sure on that one. I think the wheels are 25 mm but I dont know what these tahoes like with a 5/7 drop.

I have never had a problem putting newer stock wheels or aftermarket wheels on these old body style . My buddy has these J.G wheels on his 98 silverado and it's on a 5/7 drop

i would reccomend 255/40/20 on OBS that low, your fenders will thank you for it...i had 5/7 on my '97 2dr 2wd tahoe with 255/55/18 and they barely cleard the side of the fender

I was afraid of the tire width...I was wanting to buy a set off the for sale section. Looks like the tires just wont work. Not sure its gonna be worth it if I have to replace the tires also. I really like those wheels. i think the hyper silver would look good with my peuter hoe. Gonna keep looking for the info..But Thanks guys.
