Default Just Looking For Some Help

Hey guys...I'm new here and I just had a couple questions

I really don't know that much about cars but I'm trying to learn and I figured this would be a good place to start.

I have a 2001 Blazer S-10 LT 4WD 4-Door V6 with stock everything I believe (I just bought it a couple months ago)

I was looking for some new rims and tires and I have absolutely no idea what to look for =/

What I was hoping you guys could help me out with is to just list the basic information of the maximum rim size, wheel size, backspacing, bolt pattern, etc. that I should look for without having to lift it.

Thanks a lot guys and I hope you can help!!

use the search function and look for things like 'stock wheel specs" and things along those lines...

you CURRENT rim is a stock 15"x7" alloy with 6" of backspacing.... THAT is the key when getting a new rim. you have a 4wd and the BACKSPACING is a huge deal here. go too small and you'll rub like hell if you get bigger tires...

biggest tire you can run stock is 30x9.5r15, probably rolling on 235/70r15's or 235/75r15's right now. to go any further we would need to know what you are looking for BUT try the search function first. it will turn up a TON for you

Welcome to the forum BTW

I found these rims that are 15"x7" with a 5x4.75" Bolt Pattern...

However, it only seems to come in 4" and 4.25" backspacing...

Is 4.25" too small?

They'll fit but they will stick out the wheel well about 2". Search Cragar Soft 8 and you should find pics of them on 4x4's here or try s10forum
