    What size wheel and tire??

    Hey yall I'm shopping around for some 18" rims for my 88 blaze... I need to know what the best width and backspacing to get. Also what size tire to use... lowest profile preffered.. Its not bagged now but I am gonna bag it next year or so, and I want to lay frame without em rubbing... Or would 17's be better for a 1st gen blaze???

    Lemme know... Thanks

    well im gettinn the hook up from a friend on rims... so i'm goin that route... only mentioned the 17's is cuz i'm not sure if 18's will be too big to run without the truck sitting to high, or rubbing. And I'd like to get the widest rim/tire i can without rubbing...

    Your not gonna lay up front with 18's without doing some significant cutting of the spring pocket/frame.

    With the right tires, I don't think 17's are a problem.

    ok kewl then I'll go with 17's, but I still need to know what size to use... width (widest I can use and still lay frame), backspacing, and what size tire (lowest profile).
