You could try e-bay and whatnot but you can also find a rim/style you like and look around for uncut/drilled rims and have them cut to your needs.

I would really like something similar to the style of SS rims but black. Is it expensive to have rims made to fit your truck? lol sorry im new to this stuff, Ive had a wrx for the last 4 years and rims are a dime a dozen for those damn things

www.tirekingdom.com has an application that lets you see some rims that fit the blazer. There's not many choices, but you may find one you like.

Keep in mind there is a difference in backspacing for a 2wd and 4wd. The proper backspacing for a 4wd is 6", though you will have a hard time finding that in aftermarket rims. The closer you can stay to stock the better but I wouldn't go less than 4.5".

You want 18" diameter rims?.. On a 4wd? If you are gonna do any off-roading keep in mind that a taller side wall is more conducive to better traction when airing down. Plus 15" tires are way cheaper and easier to get when you shred a tire in the middle of nowhere. If this is a street queen then go with 20's, which is the most common size of that type of wheel.

The only time I will have it off road is maybe on a few trails going to my favorite fishing holes but nothing to sketchy, Other than that it will be used to haul a fishing boat band equipment and thats about it. 20's are to big for my taste, and the main purpose for the 4wd was just the snow, here in the midwest the roads get pretty nasty sometimes, So i was just going to throw some nice winter tires on my oem wheels and set the 18's away for the winter. I just thought 18's would be a nice size to get the look i want without loseing to much tire. Thanks for the heads up though !
