Default New wheels match my tires?

Hey everyone this is my first post on here.
I was looking at new wheels at summitracing.com found USW-94-5834 they are U.S. steel wheels http://store.summitracing.com/partde...p;autoview=sku Wheel, Modular, Steel, Black/Chrome, 15 in. x 8 in., 5 x 4.75 in. Bolt Circle, 3.75 in. Backspace. I have P235/75R15 goodyear tires on my stock wheels now. My blazer is a 97 4 door 4x4. Would my tires fit nicely on these wheels being that they are 8inch wide compared to 7 inch wide on my stock wheels. Also how will they sit on my car would they sit out wider? I dont want any rubbing. thanks for the help.

they are goina stick out at least and 1" to 2" because of the backspacing and that they are an 1" wider then stock. they would work.

Nice choice on the rims. Those would look really slick. Like jimmyboy said though they will stick out a bit and the tire may appear like the tread is narrower than the rim (but dont quote me on that). You could combat that problem wider tires and fender flares though which would look pretty cool and give your truck a nice stance.

Not the exact same wheels, but you get the idea.

o yeah ive seen those, but thats what makes me afraid to get the kind above cuz i dont like how those stock wheels look. i was wondering if since these others curve in, where the stock ones are flat, if they woudl look better.

Thanks for the advice guys. My plan would be to run my current tires until they need replacing. What tires could i put on them with out any rubbing? I dont want anything to crazy but a wider stance would look and probably ride alot nicer.
