Default 69 to 72 gmc wheel options...

Does anyone know the options that gmc had for wheel and hub cap combos in 1972? Like size of wheel , an if it differed from half to 3/4 ton and 1 ton! Any help would be awesome.

There were both 15 and 16.5" options. Wheesl could be 5, 6, and 8.25" wide at least according to a few of the 71/72 brochures I've seen.

I would try this question on the 67-72 GM trucks website.


Nice Jimmy in the avatar. I just picked up a 72 to be my next project...

Here's the forum I was talking about, I'm sure people know all the factory options..

http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/f...splay.php?f=36

I can see here in the Blazer brocure some different tire and wheel sizes, I'm guessing the GMCs were mostly the same, although my GMC brochure doesn't have the same level of info...

I don't have a great pic of mine, but here it is on the new 33s. No lift yet, but I have a 4" tuff country ready to install when I get some time..

A few pictures from those brochures. For sure, they had these optional center dog dish hubcaps.
