Default Wheels and Tires..

So I am looking to get a used set of tires to mess around on...

I found a set of 3rd Gen Firebird rims with 70% tread left....
I also found a set of older gmc rally wheels and tires...
Each is about 100 bucks....

Now... I have a 98 blazer 4dr 4wd...

What is the bolt pattern and the size of wheels/tires it will accept...

As far as I know... I think that 31" tires would be the max because it has no lift....

5x4.75" is the bolt pattern and the backspace for a 4wd is 6". the biggest tire you can fit on a stock non ZR2 blazer is 30" without trimming.

Curious... So would any RWD and 4WD chevy truck/suv be able to mount to my blazer? Assuming its within the 96-00 range?

No, I know for a fact that camaro and corvette rims will bolt up, maybe 2wd's need spacers for the Camaro rims, and the vette rims may stick out. 4wd full size trucks have 6 studs, and the bolt pattern for the older 5 bolt 2wd full sizes is different. The Colorados are 6 bolt too.

Other then that, I don't know what your options are. You'd have to research measurements from other vehicles. I know when I was searching around for some rims the guy at the tire shop said that Blazers have weird dimensions. Not very popular and not many rims will fit because of this.

Go get some dark silver 18" American Racing Torque-Thrust II's lol, they look pretty good on our trucks IMO. (They'll be sticking out a bit though.)

The 3rd gen Firebird wheels will stick out about 2" on your 4x4 since they are a zero offset with either 4" or 4.5" backspacing same with any other 4.75" bolt pattern RWD rims. Any 82-05 S truck 4x4 wheels will fit on there with no issues. 93-02 Camaro/Firebird wheels will bolt on without any issues.
