Default 15"Firebird Rims

Found a set of 15" Firebird rims for a good price. Curious if anyone has this style rim on their Blazer?

They look sharp and shouldn't have any problem if you're putting them on a 4x4 Blazer.

Yeah I'll just have to do some trimming to make sure they don't hit the fender but for $40 for the set I couldn't pass them up.

Were yours not 4th gen wheels? 16x8, 6.875 backspacing

The wheels he is asking about are 3rd gen with same specs as the more popular Z28 wheels. 15x7, 4.5" backspacing. So there is a chance he might run into fender clearance issues

That's right. They are the same as the Z28 wheels and I only have a T-Bar crank in the front so I'm probably going to be performing fender surgery.

I definitely will! I'm hopefully going to get them painted this weekend and mounted some time next week.
