What rims fit an 88 GMC Suburban?

I recently went to buy tires for my 1988 GMC Suburan and found that my rims are now non-standard and no one makes tires that will fit the rims. The Suburban is a 3/4 ton 4x4 with 8-lug rims. I don't want to spend too much on new rims so I've looked online (ebay, etc.) for deals. I see deals however I don't know if the rims for sale will fit my Suburban. Does anyone have some sort of conversion chart noting what make/year truck's/suburban's rims will fit a 1988 GMC Suburban?

I always thought it was the standard 8 lug x 6.5" wheel. Here is a link:


Down at the bottom of the page tells you the wheel size and lug pattern for your era.

Do you currently have 16.5" tall rims?

I believe my 04' has the same lug pattern. My factory wheels do fit the 92-99 3/4 8 lug pattern without any problem. The only issue you need to think of is clearance for the rear drums.

Well hoping till now you got recovered from this issue and wishing that no problem will occur in future as well. I always prefer to buy any wheel and rims from usarim that is well known for all kind of rims and wheels. Give a look on http://www.usarim.com/gmc-c-126.html for any future gms rim related issue.
