I believe the S10 and Camaro have the same bolt pattern. 5x120.65(4 3/4") on 12mm studs. I ordered a set of rockcrawler wheels 16x7 w/5.5 inch backspacing for an S10, but when I tryed to fit them they were too snug around the studs, it was close but not quite right. I guess drilling them out would help them fit over the Discos 14mm studs. I didnt bother.

Look forward to finding out how these steelies work for you or if you need to drill them out to get them to work.

The V6 Camaros came with the steelies. I ran the alloys, and no I didn't bend or break them. And believe me, they took a POUNDING during my Moab trip in '04. If you go with the alloys, you'll need smaller diameter lug nuts, which are available at NAPA, etc. Can't remeber the size, but it's the same as H2's.

I agree. I think they've got 2 more holes than the Nato's, but other than that they are pretty close. When they are covered in mud, they look exactly like them!

As for availability, I got mine here on Discoweb, but I know you can get them online pretty much anywhere. Summit Racing might have them. I know I saw some at www.lakeshorewheelandtire.com.

Greg did you have a specific backspacing with those wheels? I was talking to Marc and he had a concern about 265's rubbing on the inside with the camaro steelies. I believe they only come in one size/ backspacing.

Just curious if your were the stock camaro backspacing and what you were running then, tires.

Well, the alloys are 9" wide, and I was running 315's which worked well. After measuring, I think the alloys had .25" additional backspacing because of the width. From what I've heard, the steelies have an almost identical-to-stock 6.5" of backspacing.

'Tis true. Backspacing and bolt pattern is identical to stock. Bore fits too. Width is .5" wider than the 7" than most people look for to improve tire choices.

I found a local wheel shop and they actually gave me the one they had for free. I mounted it and it fit perfectly. So, I'll post pics once my other 4 come in.

Yes they will fit, no problem.

I was getting them from an online wheel yard in Texas.

I believe they were about 25-30 each. I decided they looked like shit.

If you don't want your DII to look like a jeep, go with a 15in Crager wheel from Jegs. IMO the backspacing you can get in a 16in wheel from pro comp is too much for the DII and you'll experience rubbing.

A 15in WILL clear and you can get a little better backspacing using a 7in wheel and ending with about 1.5in out of stock on the outside. Meaning, you'll end up with wheels that stick out approx 1.5in further from stock. What I found is with a 15in wheel you can run 33x10.50's which are waay cheaper than the equivilant 285/75. You'll also gain a little sidewall. Part 260-3975734 at Jegs.

You can run the same 16x7 wheel though and get 285/75's....260-3977734 at Jegs.

Either way, you'll also enhance your turning radius. Or order custom backspacing from 4wheelparts and wait 2 months. Also, 4WheelParts is Pro Comp.

The camaro wheels are soft. If you load put any side load on them they will probably bend. Example: running on top of a rut and sliding into it.

They just aren't beefy enough for the wight of a D. I was given eight of them and they ALL ended up being bent sideways.

I have Pro-Comps and they have been beat to hell and back again suffering immense and horrific abuse and only one of them has a small dent by the bead.

That's 70k of hard off-road use.

Bringing a real old thread back from the dead to see if anyone on here runs these. I need to get 16’s anyway so figured I would look into them. I’m planning on going with a 235/85 so I do like the .5” less of width these offer over OE alloys. Any input or photos of these on a D2?

Good Lord, Kevin. You should sit down until that feeling goes away.

Hey, I considered adapting a fullsize Cherokee brush guard to a D1. It was before Discoweb, though. Before DOR, too.

I'm sure back in the DOR days we would have applauded the effort.
