Default 6 lug Toyota fit 6 lug Chevy?

Anyone know if the six lug wheels off of an older Toyota will fit a six lug full size Chevy Blazer?

I think the bolt spacing is the same but the stud size may be different. Are the center holes of the wheels the same? What kind of lug nuts will you use? Part of what makes a wheel "safely" bolted to the axle or hub is it being centered whether it be with lug nuts that have an acorn shape. Other wheels are centered via the hub on the end of the axle or front hub.

I swapped wheels between a '91 Toyota and an '85 Chevy without any issues, both sets used acorn lug nuts. The Chevy had American Racing wheels, not the originals. Toyota wheels can be run on a GM, but stock steel GM wheels won't work with a Toyota, the center hole is smaller.

yes,i have swapped them on several different trucks...as others have said,use the acorn style lug nuts to keep the wheel centered and tighten them evenly a little at a time....the torque sequence (as i learned it) is to torque every other nut,clockwise ,going around twice...

also,the bolt pattern is the same on the 15 and 16-inch wheels


Kbietz...i think its ford and dodge are interchangable

BTW...i have a set of 15" turbine style wheels i need to get rid of...1 is broken at the flange from an overly-agressive tire-changer...cheap!

Same bolt patterns but different sized centering hubs, Chevy being the smaller of the two.

Yes, the pattern is the same. I have had 6 lug wagon wheels off of a Toyota pickup fit a fullsize Chevy Blazer.

Thanks guys, ya'll always have quick answers for me!
I may have to just buy some lug nuts now.

My old blazer has the older style aluminum rims that take the lug nuts that have the long thin shanks that go inside of the rim. I don't think they even make them anymore.

I have the opportunity to get some studded snow tires at a great price on Toyota rims.

Anyone know the thread pitch of the studs on a Blazer now??? Full of questions, ain't I?

Thanks again guys, you're a big help.

You may find that you need centering rings for them given the lugs are not centering lugs but I'm guessing.

i'm pretty sure that an 87 would be metric so it is going to be either a 12 x1.5 or a 14 x 1.5

Older 6 Lug GM's had 7/16 x 20 thread lugs..newer metric ones have 12mm x 1.5 pitch ones...Toyota's 6 lugs had the same bolt pattern but the centers dont always fit ,on OEM steel rims anyway..

if it is a full size Blazer (not an S 10 version) they had standard thread all the way til that body style stopped in 91;
chevy pickups changed body styles in 88 for 1/2 and 3/4 ton weights; 89 and some '90 1 tonners were still 73-87 body; Blazers and Suburbans didn't change body styles til '92! depending on what rim design you want look at Dakotas newer than 91, /Durango's and (I think) even Vipers as well! these were also 6 lug; and I know for sure taht at least til 96 a Dakota had a 1/2-20 stud; NOT metric.
