Alternative 18" Z71 Wheels

Recommended Posts

Needing 18" replacement wheels for 2008 truck.

I see many later model wheels but am not sure about fit. Because of the year only newer "takeoffs" show up (except for one replica pattern).

Originals are 8J18 ET31 but newer ones are either 8.5Jx18 ET24 or ET26 depending on year.

Bolt patterns appear the same throughout.


Can anyone help clarify?

Any wheel made after your 2008 will fit, the bolt pattern is the same and there should be zero problems with clearing the calipers.


I put 2016 rims on my 2012 truck when I owned it.

All the newer ones will fit.  The offset is change my a few millimeters on the newer wheels is all.  They are what, 6-7mm more negative than the stock wheel?  Hardly will be noticed if you mount newer ones on your older truck.  Same with the .5" wider wheel itself, hardly will be noticeable.
