Default Old wheels you might have laying around?

I was just looking at some stockwheels that I have seen on Blazers lately and there are 2 that I would not mind having (maybe an aftermarket) so if you guys happen to have either of the 2 I show here or an aftermarket you want to get rid of for not to much lemme know (with pics please).

Both of the rims shown are 2wd rims...

so they will only fit on 2WD's? I figured a rim was a rim since I didn't have to worry about a 4WD locking hub that stuck through the rims

They'll bolt up, but 2wd rims have less backspacing than 4wd rims.

No... They have less backspacing than a 4wd rim. Spacers will make the issue worse. You can run them, however, the rims will stick out further and you may have trouble with the fenders if you are running or plan on running oversized tires.

ahh I see. I am actually planning on running 30 in tires so I guess that would be a problem. Oh, well I am doomed to find a good looking wheel that will fit properly lol.

the only issuei had was the tires rubbing the bottom of the fender when i turned. if you're only running 30s it shouldnt be an issue theres a pic of the tires on my truck in my gallery
