Post what you hate about your blazer

(random boardem rant) No wheels ever with 6" backspacing. I don't want wheels to stick out and look like a go-kart, and I don't want the wheels to stick in because that would be impossible and if that happened something would be wrong

Curses!!!

I believe sporty drew has rims that have 6 inch backspacing. not sure of the brand or where you can get them. I'd shot him a pm about his rims. Tired of the saw blade rims too?

There's plenty of wheels with 6" backspacing or very close to it. But depending on what you are trying to do, sticking to the same exact backspace may not be a good idea. Anytime you go with a wider wheel/rim the extra has to go somewhere. A simple rule of thumb is if you don't want to give up backspace, then offset will have to change. If you don't want to move outward to the fender then backspacing will have to change. Sometimes you will have to give a little in both directions.

true, but Craig is a smart boy, he knows.

he's been looking for awhile, just can't find anything for a stock size replacement.


while i just said you're smart Craig, have you looked @ the Import/FWD wheels? there are alot of wheels for the Ridgeline available.

And curse the leather steering wheel, where after sitting in the sun it burns your hand

What size for steering wheel covers?

Oh and you know what happens when you park next to hedges? Spider webs!! Ak, inside and outside my car
