Default 2wd rims on 4x4 question.

Has anyone put the 2wd swirl rims on a 4x4 blazer? If so did you have any problems? The rims are 15x7 5x4.75 and 4 or 3.75 backspacing. Im not sure if there will be any issues. I know it will make the wheel come out of the fender which is what i want. But besides that does anyone have any issues with them not fitting over the caliper or anything?

I run/ran (they are now demoted to the winter set) only issue I had was some run on the bumper occasionally when turning and hitting a good bump, but that's a 31 clearance issue and happened with the correct 4x4 wheels

Could you post a side pic view of the rims on your blazer? i am curious how much they stick out.. Right now i have a rim with almost like 7in backspacking its like 6 n a half. How much will it stick out? 2 inchs or so?

I do have a small spacer on the back to help even out the stupid narrower rear width. The tiny bit that hangs out ain't enough to warrant me bothering with flares (theres a 2 door with ZR2 flares and little steel wheels that are nowhere near wide enough to look 'in place' and that thing bothers me almost daily when I see it go by)

You can add spacers on the back and maybe some generic aftermarket flares thats might be smaller than the Zr2 flares and it will look more proportionate
