Default Yet another soft 8`s question

I am debating on going with a set of the Cragar soft 8`s on my 4dr 4wd and was looking around..At the moment I am sitting stock height but will soon be putting on my shackles and cranking the tb`s ..later will be the 2in body lift..just wondering if I should be looking for a 4.5 BS on the wheels or will a 4 inch BS be okay on the ride and will they stick out to far with the 4inch or? I really need help here...I have called a few local people on craigslist for there 3rd gen z28 wheels with no return calls..So I was thinking just to go soft 8`s ...
I would appreciate any help guys...

theres not a huge difference between 4.5" and 4" backspacing. the 4" will stick out a little more than the 4.5". the soft 8's are 4" backspacing. The pro comp steelies are the ones that have 4.5" backspacing.

You have the soft 8`s on your blazer correct? So they are 4 in bs then? any issues with rubbing the calipers? Appreciate the help man!

I have the pro comps with 4.5" backspacing and I don't have any problems rubbing the calipers. I had to trim my fenders some to clear my 31's
