Hello all I am new to this forum, I have a 97 sil ext. I don't use the truck as a daily driver. It's kinda a work/fool around thing. I have OEM wheels and have found a set of TIS 03 20's for it. My issue is the guy I am buying them from says you have to run an adapter (wheels are 6 lug) ? is this ok and have you had any issues with adapters.

I can pick up the set of four for dirt cheap, just have to buy 2 center caps which are missing, I have managed to find some online for around 35 bucks per cap.

Thanks in advance

I'd suggest figuring out how the adapter will affect your spacing and offset. It could make for a bad time. Some of the guys on here are really good with the math behind things like this and hopefully can pitch in. A good deal is only a good deal if it will work for you.

Thanks for the heads up. Sorry for my ignorance but what does OBS mean?
OBS is Old Body Style, or the 88-98 body style.

I agree, those are some pretty hideous wheels, I would avoid them.

I assume since you said you needed adapters, you have a 2wd 5 lug. I would look for a different set of wheels already in your 5x5 lug pattern. Keep in mind, if you were to buy adapters you are looking at roughly ~$200 for adapters, and they will push your wheels out roughly 1.5" farther, which is not desirable.

AHHHH Ok I see! I will take your advice and pass on them. I would rather have some with the correct bolt pattern. Since I am on a serious budget my options are limited. I did find another set that was on a 95. It seems there are a TON of 20" wheels for sale on c.l. just in the 6 lug pattern.

Thanks gents

don't buy them just because they're a good deal, i get caught up in the same thing sometimes with wanting to buy stuff, but honestly these are the ugliest tis wheels
