Question Rim and Tire Sizing

Will 30x9.5R15 BFG All terrain KO's fit with American Racing Polished Baja rims 15x8" 5x4.75 bolt pattern and a 3.75" backspacing without rubbing the fenders? I want the wide (stuck out) tire look, but with adequately sized tires and no lift.

Well with a 3.75" back space, you are going to rub your fenders a little since the factory back space is 6". Just trim your fenders and call it a day. lol

I might be able to do something to the fender, as long as it involves nothing too bad. Where at on the fender will it rub (outside or inside)?

you might try cranking up your torsion bars alittle to see if that does it.I did that to my blazer with offset cragers and if i hit a big bump with the wheels turned it would rub but then i got a 3inch lift and its fine now

Well, what do you guys think if I just started off for now getting those american racing baja wheels or do you guys know of some fairly inexpensive wheels (around $400) that look and fit better? Would the baja's fit with the stock 235/70R15 tires without rubbing? I looked at it, and it seems like it would work, but I don't want to spend all that money just to find they rub. Thanks

Will EAGLE ALLOYS 15X8" series number 100, offset -30mm, fit on my blazer without the problem the american racing wheels had? I really like the look of these, but I want to make sure they'll fit.
