tire calculators are always nice to have when changing tire sizes from stock.

It's all a trade off. One tire does this over that tire. I never thought I'd wind up in a SUV, let alone a Blazer but I digress. My '97 2wd. was fortunate to have less than 200 mile old Goodyears on it when I bought it. 205/75/15 size. These are WalMart only Goodyears, the Viva 2s', which I can no find no fault in. They're quiet, the correct size, & steer quite well, though I really attribute the nice steering to the well done recirculating ball steering gearbox.

Regarding factory wheels; Are these statements true?

All Gen 2 came with 7" wheels, 15" Tires 5 Bolts on 4.75" Circumference.

All 2WD had 0mm offset (4" back space) and all 4X4 had 51mm offset (6" back spacing)?
