Default C5 Corvette Rims and Tire for 02 4 door Blazer

Good Evening.

I am new to this site and would like the advice of some of you pros on here. I Just got a great deal on craigs list on Rims for my 02 Blazer. They are from a 1999 C5 Corvette. The front rims are 245-45-17 and the rear are 275-40-18. I got them because they were such a good deal and I could not pass it up. They are in great condition. I do not have tires for it and I need some. I went to Tire Rack put in corvette 99 and those are the sizes recommended. My question is, would that fit the truck or would I have to do some type of adjustments like spacers. I am not that mechanicaly inclined so any help would be great. Thanks in advance.

tires are ridiculously expensive... and you're going to have to run a LOT of spacer to use those rims. Very risky IMHO.

Thanks for the reply. I am not worried so much on the money. I just want to know if I need spacers which size do I need. I guess I would need to take it to a tire place. I just would like to be as informed as possible. Btw set of 4 tires are about 500 bucks. Not too bad to play.

Is your blazer 4wd? If so sell the rims now cause running different size tires will just lead to very bad things! The offset is whats going to kill you on the wheels. They will more than likely rub on the inside without some spacers. Not sure how much you need but I'd try searching around the net and see what others used to make vette rims fit!

Thanks man it really does help. In that thread there is a truck like mine with the rims. Looks like they used 2.25 spacers all the way around. Spacers sell for about $100 and change for four.

In addition to the spacers, you're going to need to GOOD studs and nuts. Don't scrimp on studs or having them properly pressed in (if Blazers press in?). Your life will be depending on them, as they will be taxed to the max with that much distance between the nut seat and the hub. The spacers should be billet not cast as well, IMHO.
