Default 4wd wheel options

I have recently bought a 94 4x4 S10 Blazer and am planning on doing a mild lift with 31x10.50s. I want to run an aftermarket wheel. Something simple like a Cragar Soft 8. Id prefer black and 15". I have looked around online and cant seem to find much. What kind of aftermarket wheels are you guys running?

There are a lot of people here with the Soft 8's and the similar Pro-comp versions. For those type of wheels in 15x7, I think the most backspacing (BS) available is 4.5" and with 15x8, I think they offer one with 5" BS. Both of those have 12mm offset

Stock 4x4 wheels are 15x7 with 6" BS and ~50-51mm offset. The aftermarket wheels will give you a slightly wider stance but may give you more trouble trying to fit them. It's certainly possible though and many members here (including myself) have a similar wheel/tire combo.

Well when i went to look up the Soft 8s on Summitracing.com, i put in search by vehicle and only 2 wheels came up, neither of which i liked. Will any 5x4.75 soft 8 work? I just wasnt sure if there was any issues of the wheel fitting over the hub up front. I think I want to go with a 15x8 with 4.5" or 5" backspace. For the time being, I will probably mount the 235/75/16 Bridgestone Dueler A/Ts on the aftermarket wheel until i can get the torsion keys and shackles and newer tires.
