I added this to the FAQ Sticky. Thanks.
I'll leave this thread open for a little while and see if anyone can fill in the missing blanks.

Dodge Raider (1988 and maybe 89-91?) is also 6x5.5. In fact, I found one with a set of chrome rims that I am tempted to buy...if I hadn't just bought the Isuzu rims last weekend. Oh, Isuzu's also use the 6x5.5 rims, too (don't know what years, but I think its a large range).

Good info!

However 6x5.5" rims are only half the battle. We need rims with 3.75" or less backspacing to run wider tires.

Regarding the Mazdas... I belive the 4x4's used rims we can use up to around 94-95 (whenever they changed from the B2200 and 2600 to the ranger based 2400-3000-4000)

Good point about the back spacing. I measured the rims more accurately, and the Isuzu rims I have are 3.75" backspace versus the 4.5" stock rims. So I think at least the Isuzu rims are possibilities.

not a big fan of em but they do make those rim shim things...
might have to install longer studs to accomodate some of the more deeper rims/spacer setups

the chevy rims i have are from the early 80's and have the 3.75 backspacing......it seems that whatever rim you are looking at calls for a test fit....regardless of knowledge......every one has different ideas of what is "legal" to run on your rig...
