Default Wheel size?

I was wondering where I can find rims that will fit my 97 4 door AWD blazer? I was looking at JC Whitney and found these DIP D95 (Laser) Black or Chrome Wheels - JCWhitney
I just have no idea what the bolt pattern and spacing I would need. If someone could help me out that would be great. Or where I can find a place online with a large selection of wheels that fit.

You need a rim with a 5x120.65mm bolt pattern or 5x4.75 in.

You can find rims at tons of places like
Discounttiredirect.com
americanracing.com
ebay.com
Truck Parts and Truck Accessories for Chevy, GMC, Ford and Dodge Trucks from LMCTruck.com

and many others, just do some searching.

I have been searching, but I have not found anything I like that fits. I am looking for a black 5/6 spoke 17" and with a close to factory backspacing, I don't want the rims to be way out from the body.

There aren't many options for 4WD. Your current wheels are 15"x7" with 51mm offset and 6" backspacing. I've never looked into 17+ sized wheels but most 15 and 16 have far too low offset/backspacing.

If you want to stick with GM products, Camaro and Corvette wheels work pretty well on 4WD trucks. I don't know what year range to look for in the Camaros though. I've seen some that have almost exact specs for 2WD but then I've seen some that are the perfect size for 4WD. I've seen someone on here with newer GTO wheels as well and I've heard of people using the 5th gen (current model) Camaro/G8 wheels but they are 5x120mm instead of the 5x120.65mm bolt pattern that our trucks use.

I like the idea of Camaro and Corvette wheels. I've seen it done a few times, and they don't look half bad, and don't stick out too much, BUT the bolts patterns are hard to find. Your best place to start looking would likely be with 90's Camaro after market wheels.

This might give you some information about offset.

Default Wheel offsets

I have heard more stories about what my full size blazer has for an offset. I have heard +34 to -5. The only way is to take the tire and wheel off the rig and measure it yourself. GM must have really had thier collective craniums up their collective wickerbills when it comes to wheels, tires and offsets and front end arrangements. This is my first full size Blazer, well any Blazer for that matter and what really confuses me and other websites is what you have or what the web site or the counter guy thinks you have. A full size Blazer or a not full size Blazer. I go into a tire shop, tell the guy I have a blazer and automatically he starts looking up s-10 stuff. He goes outside, looks at me and says," Thats a Tahoe!". I say no...it wont be a Tahoe untill 95! Right now its a Blazer. Pointing to the S10 on my left I say,"thats a blazer too. But, I am not driving that one. He gives me that "oh crap, another trouble maker" look and goes back inside. Well? What is the offset? Is it so far inside that wheels wont turn, or so far outside that the fender has turned into a slice and dice. Back to taking off the tire and wheel and doing it yourself. I will let you know what I find. Or, better still, someone has already done this and knows the answer. 1994 KBlazer with factory alloy wheels. And the offset is.........................?
