I have the same question I was looking at 15x7 rims with 235/75r15 tires on them will they rub against the frame in the front when I turn? And does anyone have 15x7's on their blazer?

98chevyblazer, most Blazer's come with either 235/75r15 or 235/70r15 on 15x7 wheels so no, you won't have a problem.

mross45640, I think the highest backspacing I've seen on cragar 15x7's is 4.5" Unfortunately, there aren't many wheel options with the correct 6" backspacing and 51mm offset. I am running 15x7 with 4" backspacing and really like the look of the slightly wider stance. You shouldn't encounter any problems if you're using a stock size tire. I went up to 31x10.5 and had to trim my fenders as well as crank the tbars some in order to have enough clearance to turn properly.

So I shouldn't have a problem even though mine on now are 15x6?

Yours should be 15x7 unless someone has swapped them out.

I'm assuming you're talking about mdehoogh's truck. Here's his build thread, the pics you're after start on page 4: https://blazerforum.com/forum/builds...8-build-50833/
