I bought a set of 2011 Camaro LT wheels to put on my blazer. Now the problem I'm running into is that i will need spacers to make them fit right with out rubbing. Can anyone with some info on back spacing for this set up help me out with how big of a spacer i can use front and rear. Also, if anyone on here already has a similar set up can i get some pics? Thanks for all the help and time.

is your blazer 2wd or 4wd?
i am guessing 2wd....i have camaro wheels on mine and the 4.5 backspacing on what is normally a 6" back spacing blazer wheel caused my camaro wheels to stick out 1.5"

so you need to find the backspacing on these wheels vs your stock wheels and buy wheel adapters accordingly to make up the diff.

I don't the the specs on those wheels but I've thought the would look great on a Blazer, aside from the fact they are 17".

Measuring the backspace is very simple and a search should show you how to do it. You didn't state if you are 4WD or 2WD. Once you figure out what the backspacing is AND tell us what you drive then we will be able to help you.

Sorry about not stating this before but yes its a 2wd 2 dr 99 blazer. The wheels are 18x8 i believe. And the tires are 255/50r18. Thanks again for the help.

Not knowing the exact backspacing on the rims but knowing what the C5/6 Corvettes and the '93-'03 Camaros backspacing was I'm going to say these will be ~6.5". Being as you currently have 4.5" bs you will need at least a 2" spacer.

I would like to say you've tried to do this already? Either way this really helps. Now i just have to find the spacers and order them.

Yes sir, had the spacers and everything, just needed tires for the wheels, then decided to go for a different look.

Also, just FYI, the new Camaro bolt pattern is 5x120MM and the Blazer is 5x121MM.
And while they will bolt up, it stress the lugs and could result in wheel failure.
I would recommend adapters in the correct pattern and width.

Sold the wheels & spacers and got my current wheels and 1" spacers for the front and 2" spacers on the rear.

DySfUnCtIoNaL;
Those would have looked great. I got the wheels and tires for a steel. Paid 350 for them and they only ran them for about 600 miles. Now i can't wait to get them on.

Measured 2001 blazer 2wd backspace 3.5 front and rear. Camaro 2011 alum 18" wheels measured 5.5 backspace. Bolt pattern is about .015 radius smaller on the camaro as well as center hole being about .060 smaller. If anyone needs prints I can send them.
