    Lowered 4-5 W/ 18x8's <- ANY1 Have?

    Hey Im about to buy my rims very soon, i have a 1989 blazer, and its lowered 4 front 5 back, and am planning on gettin 18's.

    Ive seen rims i want on a blazer, but the blazer is always layin frame, so i can't tell how my blazer would look with those particular rim on them.

    Before i buy them, i would like to see a blazer with the same drop as mine with some 18's on it. Anyone have this?

    Thanks

    give a pic of the rims and truck and someone could photoshop it but do it in the "Digital Dreams" part.

    but it gives you an idea whats the difference if its the same rims. whether it be 15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,26,28. obviouly there will be a difference for 15 vs. a 28 but trust me it will look good.

    are 8x18'S gonna tuck up front? Think you'll need a 7" width wheel.

    ask zepia if he'll photo chop it for you. he can do it realistic, and scale it right.

    8" will tuck up front fine, with about a 4.5" backspacing. Only on a 2wd though :D

    im gonna disagree and say 8" WONT TUCK, or it will be REALLY Close...better off with 7", right Ron?:smoker:

    My X wheels are 16 X 8, 4.5"bs...doesnt look like its happening, unless negative camber takes you in that much where they will
    this is a test of the sig

    W3rd...don't think you'll have much of a tire on front w/8" wide rims and you just don't see many 18X7's anywhere :ohno:

    yup, i was ready to buy the Eagle Alloy 212's but then realized they only come in 18x8 and up... another reason why I'm gonna get the Coddingtons..

    18 x 8's are fine for BL1, but i want something that I could rotate between vehicles if necessary...

    18x8 is a fine size...i've seen alot of blazers with 18x8 rims...why do you guys disagree?
