    Im not really sure what your trying to find. I'm not sure you do either, lol. Is your blazer 2wd or 4? With a 2wd, and 17x8" rims, you will need about 4.5" of backspacing. The bolt pattern is 5 x 4.75. I don't know what all those numbers are, they look like tire sizes, but all different rims sizes. I'd go with like a 255/45 or 50 series. That should look good and should fill teh wheel well decently.

    The only tire outta what you listed that is for a 17 in rim is:
    50 255/50 R17TL 100VM+S
    Wich sounds like "+S" means Speed Rated for 100 MPH +
    ("V" Rated)
    Another company would say:
    255/50VR17
    This is not a "Z" rated tire but don't worry! Z rated means 149 MPH + and even the Vettes that come with them don't really need them.
    Now the 17X8 rim with a 4.75 (or 4 3/4) bolt pattern and a 4.5 (or 4 1/2) offset (or backspacing) is what you want for a 2WD.
    For a 4x4 for the rims to fit right these rims would need to have a 6.5 offset on the front since the axles stick out 2 inches farther on each side than the back ones do. The back ones are 2 inches farther out than the 2WD so make sure these rims aint gonna rub if this is a 4X4. On a 2WD they should tuck nice! 4X4's front wheels mount a full 4 inches farther out on each side then on a 2WD so you might wanna look at FWD rims and some spacers and extended studs for the rear?
