Exclamation Buying new rims for '97 ZR2

I'm looking in getting a set of four Daytona "D's" for my 1997 Chevy ZR2 Blazer. I need a 15x8" rim with a 5x4 1/2" bolt pattern. Does anyone know if I should worry about backspacing inches or offset milimeters?! Please HELP!!

Get the backspacing as close to stock as possible. Stock backspacing is 6" if you didn't know.

Like stated your bolt pattern should be 5 on 4.75. And on backspacing you will want to stay close to 6. If your wanting to get a 15x8 rim then you will really want to stay close to 6 because thats a 1 inch wider rim already so ur tires are going to stick out 1 inch more and if you get like a 4 inch backspacing rim ur tires will be out 3 inchs. Thats alot if you dont have any lift then you will most likely rub on the flares when turning. Hope that helps.

Finding 15x8s with with a negative offset can be a real challenge. I ordered mine through Discount Tire Co. but there are others. You might also try Summit Racing if you are set on aluminum.
