they should fit however the problem now is that your studs will not be 100% lined up and could end up with broken studs or even loose a wheel somewere down the road

Do not do it!

120mm == 4.724"
120.7mm == 4.752"

That 0.030" difference will cause added stress on your lugs. Not only that, but it is highly likely the lugs will now be carrying all of the weight of the vehicle due to fact that most aftermarket rims are lug centric and not hub centric. A hub centric rim is mainly supported by the hub in the center over which the rim fits tightly. The lugs are there for added strength and obviously to hold the rim onto the hub.

They will likely fit, but they will not be right.

ugh... that's disappointing to hear. Its gonna be hard to pass up a set of 18'' black rims with a chrome lip and decent rubbers. Why does doing it right always have to cost so damn much?? =D

The thing that's weird too is how close the chevy and bmw bolt measurements are... the auto companies should just standardize the 4, 5, 6, and 8 bolt pattern lengths.

Look into Camaro and Corvette rims as they have the same bolt pattern as our Blazers.

Just a couple of examples:

Ya the camaro/vette wheels are nice, too bad they cost so damn much. The guy who was gonna sell me those beemer rims only wanted 200 bucks.

The vette wheels I posted (the ones on the left) can be found fairly cheap. The Camaro rims on the right tend to be a bit pricey, though.

I have a BMW and a blazer and I tried it. I tried a wheel from my car on the blazer and they do slide right in but as son as you try to torqe the wheel you will notice stress on the studs. I sold the wheels yesterday for that same reason.
