Default confused about wheel size

ok im looking to get new wheels and im not completely clear on how to determine the whether a wheel will fit or not. i have spent a few hours searching the forums on the subject but the more i read the more confused i become. so i was wondering if someone could tell me which, if any of these wheels will fit on my 2000 4wd blazer with the least amount of modifications.

SIZE B.S. OFFSET C.B. (IN)
18x9 5x150 6 3/8 +35MM 4.346
18x9 5x135 5 3/8 +10MM 3.44
18x9 6x135 6 +25MM 3.44
18x9 5x4.5 5 3/4 +20MM 3.283
18x9 5x5 5 +0MM 3.086
18x9 8x6.5 5 1/2 +12MM 4.795
18x9 6x5.5 4 3/4 -6MM 4.267
18x9 6x5.5 5 1/2 +12MM 4.267
18x9 5x5.5 5 3/4 +19MM 4.267
18x9 8x170 5 1/2 +12MM 4.94
18x9 6x5.5 6 1/8 +30MM 4.267
18x9 8x6.5 4 3/4 -6MM 4.795
18x9 8x170 4 3/4 -6MM 4.94

OR

SIZE B.S. OFFSET BOLT CIRCLE
18x8.5 6 1/8 +35 5-150
18x8.5 5 1/8 +10 5-135
18x8.5 5 3/4 +25 6-135
18x8.5 5 1/8 +10 5-5.0
18x8.5 5 1/4 +12 8-6.5
18x8.5 5 1/8 +10 6-5.5
18x8.5 5 3/4 +25 6-5.5hc
18x8.5 5 1/8 +10 5-5.5
18x8.5 5 1/4 +12 8-170

all of these sizes came off of some web sites so if you are confused my the way i typed them just ask me and ill post links to the sites they came from.

thanks for any help.

i would try to stay with a rim thats close to 6" backspacing thats the stock BS so the closer you stay to 6" the better off youll be. also with a non lifted 4wd the biggest tire you can run is about 30" so a 245/60/18 should work well on a stock height blazer. im not to sure about how offset works into things so ill let someone else cover that.

once you get the 2" lift on youll be able to bump your tire size up to 31's(if you wanted to)

Are you putting on street tires or off-road treads? If going the off-road route then keep in mind that a taller side wall will conform better to the terrain and therefore perform better when out on the trail. Plus 15" tires are way cheaper too.
