Exclamation Wheel size and tire help, 2002 blazer

I want new rims and tires for my blazer. Im having alot of trouble understanding what will work and what wont. Will a 15 x 8 rim with a 2 inch BS work on my truck, all stock no body lift. I want to put 30' or 31' tires on. Will it work without rubbing? If It wont, will it work with a 2' body lift? Because I can put one on it to make it work, in fact I am going too. I just want to put the rims and tires on first because Im badly in need of new tires. If the backspacing is too much, would it work with 3 or 4? Any help is appreciated. Im pretty new to this, Im only 16 so please dont think im stupid if this is wrong. Haha Thanks.

That helps with the largest tire I can fit, but What about the width and backspace of the rims I want? Will they fit 30 inch tires without rubbing? Should I just go with 15x7 like the stock rim with a 2 inch BS, or can I go 8'?

You have two of threads on the same subject! Thats against forum rules ask the mods to kindly combine them for you. It makes it way easier for people to respond.

Just stick with 15x7 with as close to 6" BS as possible. Most of us run aroun 4-4.5 BS cause thats what most aftermarket rims come with. Don't go larger than a 30" tire unless you want to do the BL or a tbar and shackle tweek (please search to find out what that means) right away or you will be rubbing everywhere.

Thanks so much, I looked up the shackle and torsion bar tweaks, I think im gonna go with 15x7 with a 4 inch backspace and 30' tires. I'll prolly give it a 2 inch lift as well. Sorry about 2 threads, Im new to this forum stuff.

@ KidBlazer - Sorry.. I hate to be that guy, but I guess I'm that guy.
It's --> " <-- for inch/inches, and --> ' <-- for foot/feet. So it's 30" tire, not 30' tire (that's one hell of a tire).

Good luck with your venture!
