Default New Rims

Hey guys...
i have a 2000 chevy s10 blazer zr2 and im looking to replace the rims with some new ones. i want black rims but ive been looking for awhile and i cant really seem to find any that match the measurements of the stock 15 x7 rims because of the bolt pattern. are there any good sites out there where i could find some nice wheels or is there any chance any other bolt pattern will fit on without me having to change anything?
thanks

I ordered these "Unique" wheels through Discount Tire for $73 apiece. They are 15x8 with 6" of backspacing.

Bolt patterns are specific, 5x4.75 is what you need and without mods you'll never fit anything else on.

Chances are to find what you're looking for you may have to bump up to a 16 inch rim at least. When I was considering rims there wasn't much I could find that would fit that was under 16 inches. I know American Racing Aero's will fit perfectly, I don't think they come in black though, just a dark-greyish if I remember correctly. This may have changed since American Racing changed ownership again.

summitracing.com has plenty of wheels to choose from too. finding rims that fit the 5x4.75 bolt pattern shouldnt be a problem the issue most guys run into is trying to find a 15x7 aftermarket wheel with 6" backspacing since its such a odd/unique BS the majority of aftermarket rims come in 4.5"BS or less, but i would suggest sticking between 6-4.5" BS just keep in mind that the more your wheels stick out the more your tire size will decrease.

you might have to trim a bit, but i would try to stick to a 4.5" backspacing that 3.75"BS isnt going to be friendly to your front end parts.
