Default 2WD Wheels on a 4x4

I've managed to either completely confuse myself or something. I'm looking at picking up at set of wheels for my '98 Blazer (Lil' Stinker). I know they were used on I believe the Xtreme S10 pickups for a couple of years. With everything planned for modifications, these wheels will help set the truck off nicely.

My question is, do I need a spacer/adapters and if so, how many and what thickness(es)??

I dot know about that wheel in particular but I personally had 15" 2wd wheels on mine (now my winter set) and the only reason I had/have spacers is on the rear due to the dumb narrower rear axle stance (for visual effect, they were/are not needed).

I have 15" 2WD swirl wheels on my 2dr 4x4. No spacers. The backspacing on these wheels pushes the tire out a little past the fender. No issues with turning and may allow me to go to larger tires without a body lift.

No spacers/adapters required. You might run into some clearance issues depending on what size tire you will be running.

Thanks for the input guys! I really wasn't sure due to the front differential being more like a FWD car or minivan as opposed to the normal RWD style setup. If I do run spacers, it will most likely then to help bring things out more to make them look/appear correct.

You will only need spacers on the rear to match the front as the 2wd rims will already give you about 2" of extra width.

I learned the hard way that 4x4 Blazer rims don't fit in a 2wd haha.

4x4 rims will fit, but that's when you need the spacers to get them to fit.
