What size tires? There are no Cragar soft8s that will fit like your current wheels (I'm assuming you have 4WD?)

There are, in fact, very few wheels that will fit like your stock rims. Most all rims available don't have the necessary offset and they will stick out some. The amount of rub is dependent on size of the tires, specs on the wheels and ride height of your truck.

This website specializes in 4WD Blazer gear and they have a few wheels that will fit the best: http://shop.synergyoffroad.com/Wheels-and-Tires_c25.htm

Try a set of these, they're older but they're Dick Cepek, stock rim size on a smaller 60 series tire

I think it's 4 or 4.5, it's pretty much stock backspacing

Yupp, they're pretty common, 5 x 4.5 bolt pattern, 15x8, and i believe 4.5 backspacing.

5x4.75 is stock bolt pattern, small difference but depending on the lug nuts enough to put unwanted stress on your wheel studs.

Stock backspacing is 6". So 4.5" would make the wheels stick out 1.5" wider. Those Cepek's look like they might be 6" or 5".
