Default 15x8 4.750 backspace rims on stock height?

Hey everyone, I searched and just wanted to know if 15x8 4.750 back space with +6mm offset work on my stock height 04 blazer 4dr? Will it clear my brake calipers alright and will the wheels stick out of my blazer more? Any feedback is appreciated! Thanks

hey will clear the brakes fine. they will stick out quite a bit, may make putting bigger tires on it difficult if thats your plan

I'm in the same boat looking for wheels for my 98 Jimmy 4x4. I'm at 19 1/2" from center of front hub to fender lip and have a sexy rake in the back. Everyone I talk to at a shop gives me a different answer. Looking to change out the stock wheels for some 15x8 steel ones but backspacing and offset needed seem to be more of an opinion. I've been told I need a +25 offset. Does that make any sense? I read many threads here but can never really find anything that matches. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Yes, looking to go with bigger tires, but not extreme.
