Default steel rim help! Please




i have a question that may sound stupid but its bothering me...i have stock rims on my 96 blazer and i want rims but i want black ones but dont have money yet for rockcrawlers. so i was wondering about black steel rims like the ones on the police cars with the chrome hub in the middle is that black steel rims like that that will fit on my blazer? they are inexpensive and if i put a chrome hub on it i think it will look sweet.....thanks!

The ford crown victoria ones wont fit on your's, I would search for old caprice steel wheels with the chrome hub on them those will fit!! Hope this helps and one other thing is that you might need spacers for those to cause I think there fwd offset!!

Ok well firstoff in order to use the old caprice wheels your going to need wheel spacer's probably 2 inch spacer's. Now when you get spacer's you have to get the one's with your lug pattern on them as well as the bolt pattern to bolt onto your lugs. Then you can put the caprice wheels on and they will sit flush with the body of your blaze and you wont have and problems turning and losing turn radius and also rubbing in the back will be no issue as well. Spacer's push the wheels out for clearance and prevent any rubbing issue's.

you need wheels with a 5 on 4.75 (5x120.65mm) bolt pattern. GM and BMW are the only ones with this bolt pattern so wheels off a jeep or ford are not gonna work

stock blazers are 15x7 but with your stock tires, you could probably fit 15x6 and 15x8....


if the AWD blazers have longer axles like a 4WD (im sure they do) then you also want to look for wheels with 6" backspacing.

are the older s10"s...do they have black steel rims that i can put on? if i need 6" backspacing for the awd if the rims are only 4inch backspacing can 2 inch wheel spacer make up for it?

no, 2inch spacers will make it worse. they would make it so its at 2" backspacing.

this shows what backspacing does




wheel spacers mount on the hub and then the wheels would mount on the spacers.
