Anyone have a pic of their 4x4 blazer with 2wd rims? Les Schwab ordered me these wheels
They didn't recommend messing w/ the suspension but I was interested in a wider stance and they were explaining the backspacing on a 2wd rim. I'm going to see how they look next week and possibly purchase them, but was curious if anyone had pics that might give me an idea of how much wider it'll be.

Did they say what the backspacing was on those wheels? Wheels look sick tho.

I have a few pictures in my album that have 18" wheels with a 2wd offset.

Hmmm...your lowrider looks pretty good with the wide stance. I think I can picture it better now.

[:@] Talk about a major disappointment. My wheels came in today and it turns out they stick out too far. They said the tire will hit the fender when I turn. The only wheels they said would fit looked like they belonged on a lowered acura. They couldn't do anything for me. They said I can't lift it and I'm pretty much sol.

You know Les Schwab they won't do it if they think there will be the any issues. I was like "hey can I lift the body a couple inches so they fit?" and they said "You can't lift those s-10 blazers". He also made it sound like it there would be drastic rubbing. They couldn't even offer me black steel wheels that would fit. It sucks I didn't think it would be that hard to find some decent wheels. I'm thinking I'll call discount tire and see if they can do anything but I doubt it cause their website said they don't have any wheels that fit my rig
