What size should I go with... I want to add Z-71 flares and new wheels tires to my Z-85.

They make a 15x7 and a 15x8

Are the hub bores large enough?

TIA,
Brian

15x7 is the same as our stock Z71 rims. But you will need to check the backspacing ( BS ) and offset. I believe the following are the specs for the Z71 wheels:

I think the offset was 33mm and a backspacing approx 4.8" (half the rim width plus the offset)

Hub bore is 108mm.

^ The Bajas come in 15x7 w/ -6 offset so they'll stickout 39mm more than the factory wheels assumung that's a + 33 offset, which I believe they are b/c they're not dish wheels.

Makes sense b/c it says the backspace is 3.5" which is 1.3" less than OEM... meaning they stick out 1.3" more.

The 15x8's stick out even more b/c they have the same backspaceing and -33mm offset... so they stick out 1" more.

^ I think once my current tires wear out I'll get the Bajas and Z-71 flares.
