Depends on what you're looking for. Wheels are harder to find for our trucks because of the stock 6 inch backspacing, but there are some out there. Are you wanting a steel wheel, aluminum, or what? Less offset will make the wheels stick out further and you'll run into clearance issues with the fenders if you run an oversize tire. From looking around for wheels for my own rig, it seems like there's a better selection to choose from when you get into the larger diameter wheels. Post back with what you're looking for and maybe someone will come up with something.

Welcome to the forum!

I am looking for aluminum. I can find steels easy. And I want a smaller wheel cause i want to put 33" mudders on my truck after my 6" lift

Here are the one's I've had my eye on for my Blazer when I get the money: Eagle Alloys 1469-5834 - Eagle Alloys 146 Series Polished Wheels - Overview - SummitRacing.com

The price is good and they have 5.5 inch backspacing which is only .5 inch less than stock. I think they would do ok with 31's, but I don't know about 33's. You might need a little less backspacing with those.
