Thumbs up Re: tire/wheel fit

There should be a code stamped into the right (passengers side) axle tube facing towards the front of the vehicle as installed.
This code will contain the ratio, assembly date, plant and option(s) (posi for example).
Some codes are specific to a given make/model from one of several GM divisions that assembled an X-Body based vehicle for their line under their specific name(s).

Here a great source for those codes and information - http://novaresource.org/axle.htm

Re: tire/wheel fit

You can also measure the difference from backing plate to backing plate. Serial numbers are nice but can be misread. Measurements don't lie.
