Hey guys, brand new to the forum. Brand new to the van world!
I just bought a 93 g30 extended.
It needs a few things to bring it back to life.
First and foremoat tires.
Thought maybe I could throw some wheels on it while I'm at it.
2 questions

1 can i upsize from 225 75 16 to 245 without any rubbing...?

2 what kind of wheels will fit my rig? Can i use some 8 lug gm truck wheels...?
Wheel dimensions that i can use for shopping?


Thanks! Sooooo looking forward to being part of the van crew!

Searched 8 lug Chevy rim .... an look for the style .... they are billet rims solid alum. not forges, cast or stamped. Start with a solid chunk of alum turn it on a lathe and then to a mill for slots N bevels.

Thanks for all the info frscke1!
Those were the exact wheels I was hoping to use!

Got any other useful 1 ton tips?
The van i just got needs some work before it's road worthy.
Tires, exhaust, front end work (not sure what yet), definite cleaning, new battery. Vent window on the driver's door has no lock...
Drivers seat won't slide, found a broken cable underneath but I was thinking about trying to swap out some more push seats.

93 g30 with only 195,000 kms not miles
Engine replaced at 100,000
With the boost it runs amazing!
I scored this for 1000$

I am runnong 265's all around on 16" wheels and rub a little bit when turning. I am sure if my springs werent worn out from being 40 years old it would be fine, though.

You know those GM factory Alloys might be just the ticket on that nice G30 NEmery

nope. I like my Chrome Cragar Nomads. LOL. I am sure the extra backspacing could help with the rubbing (I thing the late model factory steel wheels I previously replaced the 16.5" Turbines with were like 6" (EDIT: Looked it up, they were 5.6"BS), but I prefer the chrome and am not the biggest fan of late model wheels.
