Default 15"x7" with 4" backspacing on 4x4 S10

Like everybody else I'm looking for new wheels for my 1994 Blazer S10 4x4, and I have found some Rock Crawler series 99 15x7 4"BS, but from what I've read nobody seems to think these will fitt without rubbing in the front?
Everybody just replys: "You might have some rubbing"

Isn't there anybody on this forum running with lower ET rims then the stock ET+60mm (6"BS) on a stock car? (no lift, no cut-outs)

I'm gonna use the stock 235/70/15

You should be ok if you use the stock size tire and don't do any hard wheelin or curb jumpin. I had the same size, style and offset wheels on mine with 31s with a t-bar crank and shackles, but I rubbed so I took a sawzall and a big hammer and did some friendly persuasion lol

Default wheels

i have some rims i threw on, i would like to know what backspacing they have and what width they are, im guessing they are 4 or 4.5 bs and maybe 8 wide i could be very wrong, all i know is that my tires swell out a tiny bit unless thats just the tire type and they sit out of the fender about 2 inches.

wills-07 those wheels look like they stick out as far as my cragars did. they were 15x7 with 4" backspacing. If your tires are 31's, then they will kind of bubble out a little. Which is alright by me

Looks good.
How is it to drive with those wheels? any rubbing?

I have considered to go for maybe 8" wide wheels in the back, with the same backspacing as the 7" in the front to get the rear wheels a littlebit further out, But im not sure if the 4wd is very sensitive to different front/rear tire diameter?

Different width is ok but different diameter is bad, your transfercase won't be happy.

im sure if you drove over really big bumps you would hit the fenders but other than that no rubbing at all, with the back i just bought spacers to make them stick out even with the front tires, i would prefer a wider tire though. does that mean i would need to get a wider rim for the back

i am about to buy new rims that are 15x7 and 4.5bs, i want my tires to stick out of the fenders alittle but did you have a problem with the rear tires not sticking out as far. i did and i put spacers on and im not a big fan of them, but now all my tires stick out the same and it looks good. i want to take the spacers off though, so i just wondering what size rims should i get for the back to make up for the spacers? can i just get the 15x7 and run a little wider of a tire or get 15x8 for the back or just get 4''bs for the back and 4.5 for the front? any help would be very apreciated , oh by the way i am just running p23575r15s on stock 4x4 height no lift.
