Default Wheels for stock suspension!

Hey all! New to the form, and blazers really but I just picked one up for winter. I was going to run some 30x9.5r15, and I wanted to buy some cragers. I did some research but couldn't find a 100% answer. Will 15x8, with a 4.5 backspacing fit with that tire on stock suspension? Or would a 5inch backspacing be better? Or even a 15x7 with the same backspacing?

Thanks everyone!

Is it 4x4? If so then the stock backpack is 6" on a 7" wide wheel. If you go with cragers, I think the closest they have is 5" on a 16x8 wheel that's available in our bolt pattern. That to me says that the tire is going to stick out 2". If you go with the alternative and get 4.5" backspace on a 15x7, I believe about an inch less should stick out. Either way, I'm gonna have to say they're gonna rub when you turn. When you change the backspace, you change how much tire swings on the center line of the ball joint. Add over sized tires to the mix and you have even less room. It's nothing a grinder, sawsall, and/or a bfh can't fix.

Yes it is 4x4. So even if I went with 15x7 and 4.5in backspace they still wouldn't fit. How much would need to be cut away for that to work?
