Default fitting camaro wheels to blazer

ive got a 95 blazer and im looking to upgrade the wheels. i was looking at a set of factory 97 16x8 chrome 5 star camaro wheels. i know the hub and bolt pattern are the same, but i cant find any info on the offset. does anyone know if these wheels will stick out past my fenders in the front, or will rub on the fenders or suspension parts? i already have a rub issue in the front between wheel weights and the sway bar end links-factory wheels and suspension. i planned on getting a set of 245/75/16 blizzaks. will they rub if i turn tight? they measure 9.6 inches section width and 30.5 inches tall. i know 31's will rub, but 30x9.50's dont.

30x9.5's dont rub with stock rims (6" BS). your rims are wider now. I just bought the same size rims and looked into it last night. search 16x8 wheel (or rim) and [color=red]camara wheel (or rim)[/url] ZQ8 also had some stuff.

From what I could gather, you will not rub height wise, but will rub TURN wise. ALSO make sure you fit the fronts to the front and the rears to the rear (if specified) as the offset may be different.

If i remember correctly, with 97' rims you should be fine as they should have huge back space also. A +1.5 t-bar crank should get you the clearance needed if you bump your steering/suspension in front also. *all info is what I remember reading last night (late) so it might not be perfect. still search it up.

i wasnt planning on running a 30 inch tire on the camaro rims. i was just wondering if the 245/75 would fit on it, or if i would need to run a tire that wasnt as tall. the ones i was looking at arent specific front to back, but i was planning on running a 1 inch spacer on the rear to bring the tires out to the fender

I'm guessing you have a 4x4, in which case the Camaro rims will bolt up fine. I had a set of 16x8 BBS rims from my 94 Camaro that I put on my 91 Blazer 4x4 with 235/70/16's and they hit the bolt at the back of the fenderwell, so I removed it. 2nd gens have a bit bigger wheel well opening so you should be fine, but doing a T bar crank should solve any clearance issues. I didn't know about doing that back when I had my Blazer.

alright, thanks guys. its going into the shop in two weeks for tires and alignment, i asked if they could balance and raise the front an extra half inch. the front of my blazer doesnt sag like 90% of the rest because i removed about 40 pounds of unneeded weight (i.e. headers, electric fan, cai)
