Default Wheels for 97 2 door

Ya i Was goin to put the black rock krawler wheel on my blazer but the guy at big o said that if i did that i could only do stock tire size(235). He said for wheels to not rub i would have to get a positive offset wheel. Is that true? Any help would be great! thanks ryan

on stock wheels you should be able to get 30x9.5x15 which is slightly larger than the stock 235/75r15's.

youre truck appears to be a 4WD but im not positive. if it is 4WD, then you want to find wheels with 6" of backspacing (ie. very high postive offset, like 50mm) in order for them to not rub.

this is where the tough part comes in. out of all the black rock crawler-style wheels i have ever seen, they are almost all 4.5" or less backspacing. if you were to run those wheels (4.5" b.s.) with stock tires, you still may run into some rubbing issues up front.


unless you find some wheels with 6" backspacing, 235/75r15 is probably the largest you would want to run

THats what i thought but i wanted to ask and make sure. It is a 4X4, do you think doing shackles and crankin up the torsion bars would allow me run rock krawler's witha bigger tire?

yeah, depending on the exact specs of the wheel and how high you crank the t-bars, you should be able to fit a slightly larger tire with those wheels

One too many 'e's in there for 4wheelparts, Otnietdehoooo. Amazing how smart some people are. They had to have realized someone would misspell some of these domain names and take them to their site.
