What is the best size for my vehicle with a 6 inch suspension lift and 2 in body lift? I want an offset stance. Should I just spend the money to get offset rims or just buy spacers? Thank you

Put the money into the wheels and tires, not spacers. Although I run spacers on my 04 purely for stance/looks, spacers should really only be used when that little bit of clearance is needed to put on a set of wheels that you may have gotten second hand. But if you're buying wheels new, just get the offset you need to begin with. Picking a wheel with a 2wd S10/Blazer offset will make them stick out a couple inches further than stock 4wd wheels, and for most that is enough.

As far as size, I'm sure with a total of 8" of extra body clearance, you could clear at least 33"s, 35"s MAYBE, but 36"+ may be pushing it as you'll probably start hitting front suspension components at full steering lock. BUT, I could be completely wrong, and someone feel free to correct me if I am. I rubbed with just 31's with a shackle and torsion bar lift... If you want to go much bigger, it's time to start looking at swapping in a solid front axle.

Keep in mind that with an original stock tire size of less than 29", jumping up to a 33" on stock gearing is going to turn it into a dog on the road... not that a 4.3 Blazer with 8" of lift is going to be a fast vehicle anyhow :P

Thank you! I ordered offset rims with 32's today. I figured I could clear 33's but going off of other images, I really liked the look of the 32's. I think I can go without speed haha!
