    Center bore is a bit small. Some modification to your hubs or spacers will help.

    Grind down the tabs and lip on your hubs or bore the centers of the wheels to 4" and they will fit.

    They(navigators) are a different 6 lug(6x5). Some people just bend the studs a little and bolt them on(DO NOT DO THIS YOU WILL END UP KILLING YOURSELF OR YOUR TRUCK) or some people get the rims redrilled to the right 6x5.5 pattern

    The navigator has 6 x 135 bolt pattern - our trucks are a 6 x 139.7 with a center bore of 109 mm the chevy rims you have are 89 mm bore. There is a thread where he had a set of these wheels bored in here.

    Steel rims gonna give you a headache to bore the center. Get a nice set of Toyota t100 16" if you want steel rims. Otherwise Toyota has the right center bore. Also, I seen a few chevy colorodo extreme models running the Nissan titans here.

    I used isuzu trooper rims, on my 4x4, center bore was 2 or 3 millimeters to small. angle grinder done the job but took my time not to throw the wheel out of balance. then had them balanced. runs straight no shake. my previous post has a link to rims and makers with bolt size and center bore. It may help you.

    true beadlockers are not DOT approved and illegal for the street - not that that stops anyone from using them...

    also remember to use bulged lug nuts when using late model chevy rims as the lug holes are 14mm instead of 12mm

    lot of work and expense - the bulged nuts are cheaper and safe.

    Chevy/GM Rallye Rims

    I had a set of 15"x8" Cheyenne rims, found a set of bow-tie centre caps, already had a set of 2 1/4" Chrysler 300 centre caps.....peeled the bow-tie off of the Chevy caps, drilled a 2" hole in the centre and popped my 300 caps in. I had my rim centre hole machined to eliminate the centre lip and voila....instant 15" rims that look awesome on the truck. The offset allows me to put 275 60's on them with lots of clearance.

    Steel rims are a piece of cake to modify....any shop with a late can do up a set fast...and CHEAP! I had my 15x8 Chevy Sierra rallyes done for $15 a piece....turned out amazing......and with the modified caps and trim rings, they really suit my '87 Ram50.
