Default HELP!!! Need new tires and rims and no idea where to start!!!

Hi!

I'm female and never had to look at tires or rims etc. lol I have a 2000 blazer and would like to spruce it up a bit so it doesn't look so old. Haha I know nothing about tires or rims. I think it's on stock runs etc. what is the simplest way to spruce it up without doing much else too it like lifting it etc. I would have to pay someone to do it as I wld not know where to start! I need tire size and rim size and maybe a site where I can buy them at a good price or second hand. I'm currently missing hub caps and need new rubber etc so need a makeover!!! Help pretty please!!!

-Stock rims are 15x7

-Stock tire size:
2wd=235/70/R15
4wd=235/75/R15

As for rims, I'd check places like summitracing.com or 4wheelparts.com All you should have to do is enter in you year/make/model/etc... and they'll bring up the correct size rims for you

The biggest thing about wheel fitment is, is the truck 2 or 4 wheel drive? the bolt pattern will be 5x4.75 or 5x120.65. 4x4 trucks have 2" more backspacing than 2wd trucks. 2wd wheels will stick out farther on a 4x4 truck, and a 2wd will need spacers to use 4x4 wheels.I have 4th gen (93-02) Camaro wheels on on my 99 4x4, and they fit perfectly. 2wd trucks fit earlier Camaro/Firebird wheels. My GMC Jimmy 4x4 has a stock tire size of 235/70/15, but most 4x4's will have 235/75/15 stock tires. I have 235/65/16 tires on a 16x8 wheel with 7" backspacing.

personally I like the look of black rims and an aggressive tread pattern. Depending on your driving habits that is and do you want a lift on your truck will help decide what size, Heres a pic of my 98 with no lift and stock tires

It's pewter in colour and I think I prefer Chrome looking rims. I don't want to have to lift it etc. less I have to pay someone to do the better! How do I post a picture? Does anyone have examples of a pewter blazer on chrome looking rims?
