Default Someone please just answer this one question!

I have searched on this forum and I have searched online but I cannot find just a strait answer! I don't know what all the numbers mean. Will rims off of a 2000 Jeep fit on a 96 Blazer 4X4. This is all i need to know! Please help me out here!

Thank you very much,

ok im not sure if it will but heres the basics of wheel and tire sizing:

say we have my stock wheels and tires.

on my tires, the numbers 235/75/15R are written. here's what they mean:
-235----this is the width of the tread/***** on the tire
-75-----this is the percentage of the tread/**** width that is equal to the sidewall height
235x.75= 176.25
-15R---this is the diameter of the rim the tire is made to fit. in this case it is made for a 15" rim

now on to wheels. these specs are usually engraved on the back of the wheel somewhere.

my stock wheels: 6"BS 5x4.75 15
6"BS-------this is the distance from the back of the rim to where the wheel touches the hub
5x4.75"----this is called the bolt circle. 5 is the number of lugs or bolts, and 4.75 is the diameter of the circle that they are cut on
(draw a circle with a 4.75" diameter and put five evenly spaced dots on her and there you are
15-----------once again, rim diameter.


hope that helps at least a little........im not 100% on this, but im pretty sure that the jeep rims are a different bolt circle, so simple answer; no they wont fit. [8D]

good luck!

NO!!!!!


The Jeep has a different lug nut bolt pattern. The lug nuts are the nuts that hold the wheel to the truck. The Jeep has five per tire, and so does the S10-Blazer. However the Jeeps lug nuts are spaced 4.5" apart, while the S10-Blazers are spaced 4.75" apart.

There are other GM vehicles that have the 5on 4.75" lug nut pattern, (5 lugnuts on a 4.75" spaced pattern).
Camaros, Firebirds, Corvettes, and a few others.

82-03 BLAZER / JIMMY 4WD - Bolt pattern 5 on 4.75 in - lug nut size 12X1.50

99-04 WJ GRAND CHEROKEE - Bolt pattern - 5 on 5 in. - lug nut size 1/2

This is what I keep finding and with your explanation they won't fit. That sucks. I was going to be able to get a REALLY good deal on a set of rims and tires. Still might buy them to sell them for more though!

Thanks for your help! I really do appreciate it! Now I kind of half *** understand how the wheel sizes work!

Well, I'm glad you 'finally' got your answer. But in the future, do NOT double post.
