Default Help will these fit?

im getting new rims and tires for my blazer
i have american racing rims on it now idk the width, it was on the truck when i got it,and i want to get these cragar soft black 8 wheels, ive always been a fan of them on blazers.Im just wondering if this rim will fit with the back spacing and all and how far they will stick out and how bad will they rub or if they rub at all.Im also wondering which is the best tire to get along with these rims im getting 33x12.50x15 tire, the 35's have seen there better days.
thanks for the help in advance

Try and get the 4.5" backspacing, 4" is pretty shallow and you may rub. Since you're getting tires, have you considered a 17"?

Or are you dead set on a 10" rim? With that wide of a rim and that shallow of a backspace (4") I'd really be worried about you rubbing your fenders at full lock/flex.

17's would probably be better huh

I'm not dead set on a 10" rim I just want the deep dish look id want the tires to stick out a little bit past the fenders for the wider stance look.

Would a 12.50 tire fit on that rim? Or would the rim be to small?

The tires I have now rub on the fenders at full lock. It would be nice not to rub pulling into parking spots

Thanks for all your help I'll be ordering rims and tires in proly 2 weeks or so.

Go for a 9 inch rim with a 12.5 tire. I would not go any less than 4" backspacing, you may be okay with it though. If you want to know how much backspacing you have now just google "Measuring rim backspace". It's easy to do.
