Would 2005 Front/Rear wheels fit 1999 LT?

Are all LT models using the same rear and front wheels? Would 2005 LT Front/Rear wheels fit a 1999 LT?

I use this site to look up parts:

If I remember correctly, the rims are the same.

The '99 - '03 LT has a different ABS ring than the newer model. AFAIK the front wheel rim is not interchangeable.

Agreed. The ABS ring mounts on the brake disk standoffs on one side, under the rotor. The older and newer ABS rings are different thicknesses. So to compensate, the brake disk standoffs are different lengths. So I believe that either wheel will bolt up to any year LT, but the rotor will be in a slightly different position which would most likely cause brake rubbing problems.

I think the rear wheels are basically interchangeable though.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Correct, the stand offs on the front rims are a different length...1/8" longer on 2004 & newer...I found this out when I purchased some rims from a forum member that had them for sale...So I gave the front rim to my son who has access to a table grinder & had him grind off the 1/8"....The rear rims are interchangeable.
