    EMAIL I RECIEVED::::

    Christopher,

    I can do the 18x8, 4.5" backspace. You might want a 7" width in front, for
    more room when you bag it. 245/35/18 or 245/40/18 on the 8" 205/40/18 or
    215/40/18 on a 7" (you could go 35 if you want).

    The set of wheels is $1575 for the reverse rim 18x8 set of 4 wheels, they
    would be made 5-spoke since your truck is 5-lug bolt pattern.

    For wheel and tire package, you would be looking at $2200 + shipping.


    Let me know if you have any questions,

    the blazers in the gallery that are running 18x8 are fully body dropped... and 1st gen. I linked a link to one in one of my previous posts.

    im not saying its not possible to run a 18x8 and tuck

    but...

    you have to run a tire exactly 8" wide (i like a little extra meat for curb clearance)

    and you probably have to roll the fender up a tad bit...

    every 1st gen blazer I saw at Carlise... i asked every owner what they ran... 7" every time

    So in conclusion, the main differnce between a 18x8 and 18x7 is alot of extra work and a headache.

    18x8 up front will fit and tuck on a 2 wheel drive with 4.5 offset. my friend has them on his blazer and they tucked fine.

    if you do want 18x7 i know that boyd coddinton makes them because thats what i have.

    one thing you might what to consider is size/availablity/price of tires. That would be a big factor. Ciao
