Default 1994 Blazer

So I just picked up a 94 blazer sport with 100k miles and horrible paint for 2000 bucks. It has been sitting in a driveway in California baking in the sun for years. Anyways, it will be getting out of paint soon and I am looking to get rid of the stock wheels. I am just curious though, is there anywhere in the world I can find the actual stock specifications for the OEM wheels on it? Its easy to find the diameter and width, and lug pattern, but how can I find the offset? I just want this as a reference point for when I look for new wheels so I can tell how much further in or out the wheels are before I order them or buy them etc. If anyone knows of a good site that maybe lists all of these specs for gm wheels or anything like that please let me know.


thanks

You might try one of the online vin decoders. Sometimes they bring up specs that aren't really vin related.

JayJ just a little food for thought. You've probably already figured this out but maybe not. This is what I've learned about choosing wheels, first I decide on what size tire I want and make sure that I have the clearance for it. Then I start looking for wheels that will accommodate the tire. Then I make sure using the dimensions and specs of them together to see if they will work on my Blazer. You have to have not just clearance from tire to fender well but also clearance when turning. I usually start with measuring what is already working on my truck and go from there. Saves time and money. (If you buy online you need to know exactly what you need before making that purchase) If you just guess you'll be spending money to send them back if they are wrong for you application.
