...Rubber is a common term for Tire, so yes...

Are you looking for big huge flashy rims and street tires, or were you looking more for a offroad setup with big tires and simple rims? You have two directions really..and you'd have to decide which way you wanted to go.

Alot of people like the soft 8's or wagon wheels on the blazers. You can get them in black chrome and white normally. Summitracing.com has them strating at around $39.99 each for a 15x7. They go up to 17 inch if I remember right. Your factory backspace is 4 inch for a 2wd, which I'm assuming you have. If it's 4x4 it is about 6 inches. Any lower backspace will set the rim out from the wheel well, giving it a wider stance. Some like it some don't. Tires is something that is a personal opinion, so I'll leave that blank. If your at factory height a 30 inch tire like a 30x9.50x15, or 245-75-15 is about the largest you can go normally before rubbing. A little bigger offset can fix that, but to much and you will rub the outer wheel wells. Sorry for the long post, I've been looking at rims and tires for after my body lift so I've been studying this subject. Hope you find what your looking for and welcome to the forum.

4.25 backspacing would make the rims pulled in .25" more then stock.

I'm not quite sure I understand what you're saying

The soft 8's will stick out further then your stock wheels because the soft 8's have less back spacing then the stock wheels (which have 6in back spacing).
