Default Need help with wheel size!

I have a 99 Blazer LS 4X4 4dr, and I'm trying to find some new wheels for it, but I don't know what the backspacing is. All I know is the diameter (15'') and the bolt pattern (5-4.5). What would the backspacing be? Also, what would the wheel size be? 15x8 or 15x10? My tire size is P235/70R15. I am looking at ProComp Rockcrawler wheels like these.

Series 97, 15x8 with 5 on 4.5 Bolt Pattern - Gloss Black

ur wheels should be a 15x7 with a bolt pattern of 5 on 4.75. but i could be wrong. backspacing should b sumwhere around 3.5". but im not 100% sure.

Stock wheels are 15x7, 6" backspacing, bolt pattern of 5x4.75.

Straying from stock specs means higher chance of rubbing. Going to a 15x8 with 4.5" backspacing means the tires are going to stick out 2" further than stock and could rub on the fender and/or bumper while turning.

Yeah you don't want 5x4.5 spacing you want 5x4.75! 6" is stock and the most you will find in the pro comps I believe is 4.5". This will work but like Jam said you increase your chances of rubbing. Also get a 15x7 with the tire size you want to run or your rim will be to wide for the tire and it will look funny.

Yup, those are the ones you want. I don't know about tires clearing though. Someone else may have better insight into that.

Why would you get another set later?
