Default Crager Rim Help Please

Alright im sorry if its been asked ive looked a bunch of times now and really couldent find much but a good amount of people have these rims and others alike and they fit on their blazers. I met up with a few people who have them but it slipped my mind and I forgot to ask the specs of there rims. I have a 1999 Blazer 4 Door 4WD, and im looking to get these rims (those arent the right specs just showing an example of the rims) http://www.summitracing.com/parts/CRR-3975812/ or these http://www.summitracing.com/parts/CRR-3655812/
I called them and was haveing some slight phone problems and dident really get a chance to call summit back so this is why im asking on here. Im looking to keep them 15"s also im just upping the tire size to 245/75 or 255/75. But need help with what rims to get and which ones you guys would think look better lol. I wish that was the only problem.

i like the soft 8's better, but youll want to stick as close as possible to the stock backspacing(6") youll be able to get by with the 255's with a 15x7 rim with 6"BS if your rim has less BS(i suggest no less than 4.5"BS) youll either have to trim or run a smaller tire. for example there is a member on here(wolfpack) who is running a 265/70/15(roughly same size as 255/75) on a rim with 4.5"BS and 3.5-4" of lift and he had to trim a bit.

if you want to fit the 255/75's and dont want to trim i would suggest 15x7 with 6"BS if they dont offer a rim with 6"BS just try to stick as close as possible to 6", but like i said earlier the less BS you have the more your tire size will decrease unless you dont mind trimming. the bolt pattern for blazers is 5x4.75 not 5x4.5.

What sucks is this is the only thing I could find with as close to 6" backspaceing as possible as its 4.25" most are only 4. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/CRR-3975734P/

you can run a wheel with 4.25"BS, but youll just have to keep your stock tire size.

Ok im sorry to bother you guys again mikeinwi you have been the biggest help to me and i just need your help one more time please. Im giong to order these rims today unless other wise advised, I know the backspaceig is 4" im giong to run the stock tire size. Its the right lug pattern but what im not sure about is the offset (mm) ive never knew abut that. If you would mind helping or telling me if these will fit my blazer with no problem. Thanks again!

Maybe you should look at these: http://www.4wheelparts.com/Wheels/Ro..._pn=PCW52-5762

They are a little more however they have 4.5" backspacing. They are available in 7", 8" and 10" widths.
