Default CALLING ALL ~2002 2WD IFS S10/Blazers/Jimmy's Etc that USE WHEEL SPACERS

Hello all!
I'm now on my way trying to find wheel spacers for my 02 2wd IFS Blazer. I want to push the tires out of the fender just a tad if possible. Even if they aren't out of the fender, wider should be better right?
Anyways, I was hoping somebody could point me in the right direction on where to go to purchase some. I.E. Pep boys, Auto Zone etc. And how thick? I wish to keep my stock length wheel lug studs.
Please let me know! Thx!

EBay. Just make sure you get hub centric ones.

If you would go thru the trouble of designing longer control arms; different length uprights; correct king pin inclination angle; proper center link position & length; new idler and pitman positions; spring and shock positions and rates; and least, wheel center line. I might say yes! My guess is that you won't. I think you only want your truck to look more "Rhambo".

If wider was better dont you think the big General would have made them that way?

I was going purely off of a common sense stand point not a technically perfect theory. And the General did make the 4wds fit bigger tires. My 235/75/15's rub on full lock
