Default Wedding American racing torque thrust wheels on a 98 4 by 4 Chevy S10 Blazer

I have a 1998 Chevy 4 wheel drive Blazer and am wanting to go to a set of American racing torque thrusts on it, wondering if anyone knows of anyone that has done this? I know that they will work on a 2 wheel drive but I'm not seeing the big deal other than the offset as far as the fitment and functionality goes on my 4x4 Blazer, tired of all the negativity and saying that they won't work

Thanks, I appreciate it, wondering about mounting a set of American racing torque thrust on my 4x4 S10 Blazer though, wondering about what backspacing to use other than the stock 6 inch backspacing on 15 inch rims and I've been running 31-10 .50s on my old stock wheels at stock height

You've been running 10.50" tires on stock 6" backspacing rims? Do you have rub on the frame or sway bar at full lock?

I've got 10.50"s as well, and I was told by the lift kit manufacturer that they would rub with 6" bs. Just curious how it's working for you, I bought a set of 4.5" bs wheels, and come nowhere close to rubbing
