Default Available Wheels?

Hey Guys, I am new here and new to Blazers altogether. I just picked up a 2000 model that's 4wd. The factory rims are all 4 leaking around the bead and I don't like the look to begin with. I am interested in possibly putting on some other wheels that came off of something else. I don't have a ton of money for custom wheels. What out there fits nicely on our 4wd blazers? That also doesn't require modifications?

The lug pattern is 5x4.75

Corvette wheels are a common choice, and c4-c6 are a direct bolt up for 4wd...but be aware a lot of c5 and c6 wheels are staggered(front and rears are different sizes) so you will need to run 4 fronts, or 4 rears to avoid damage to your 4x4 system.

Trans am, firebird, and older Camaro wheels are the same bolt pattern also, but to the best of my knowledge only the newest style transam wheels will fit without rubbing on a 4wd.

Please note: 5x4.75 is NOT the same as 5x120, despite what people may tell you, there is a .65mm difference. That may not seem like much, but it puts extra stress on lugs and can cause them to shear...some people have successfully ran 5x120- but others have had lugs shear. I highly recommend against running 5x120

Honestly? Another set of factory wheels. Least trouble, least headache, guaranteed to work no issues.

Also, there is an "aftermarket" (I say it that way because chevy had a factory wheel that looked (had same specs to) the exact same) wheel that will work just as well as a factory wheel.

Early 2000's 16" Camaro/Firebird wheels fit nicely and actually look like they belong
