    IROC rim questions.

    i have a set of IROC rims, and one got broken in a little accident, so my friend jusy got my another one. but the problem is 3 are front rims and one is a rear, are they different offsets or what? what should i do and which ones are good for the 4x4, i know 4 front ones will stick out, but will the rear rim stick out just as much, i could trade them for the same rims but front or back ones.

    and which rubbers are good to throw on there, i wanna use a 45 series but will that look too small?

    in answer to your sig:

    about 155 miles per tank. if you have a 20 gallon tank (i think thats what mine has) that's 7.75 mpg. ouch. sorry that's not what this thread is about. :)

    i think your MPG is wrong. apparently when i was getting 150Km on a tank, it was 12mpg. now i get 250, and mpg has dropped to 7? thats wrong but thanks.

    oh is there 255 series tires?

    your wrong somewhere...
    i was getting 150 km on a tank, and that was 12mpg, now im getting 250 and its 7? that cant be right?

    is there a 255 tire size or should i stick with 245/45/16.

    what is the offset problem with the front or back iroc rims?

    do you have a 20 gal tank?
    i went to onlineconversion.com and put in 250 from km to mile. it said 155. 155 divided by 20 is 7.75. i might be doin somethin wrong, but i dont see it.
    it says that you used to get 4.65 mpg w/ 150km, or 93mi, per tank.

    i think that with a 2wd blaze you can use the same offset rims front and back, but you need a spacer to make it look right.

    i have a 4x4.
    and i've had the rims on my truck before, i know they stick out a bit but will the rear rim stick out the same or any less or more, ie: different offset?
