    what tire size?? don't shoot me

    ok guys i have a question for ya. i am goin to put some 17x9 i beilive camaro chrome ss ten spokes on my 2000 blazer 2wd lowered 4" and was wondering what tire size would i need for it to look decent and not a huge gap in the fender wells. and i want to have a little bit wider tire in the rear than the front too.

    it has 235/70/15 on it now and i like how it fills the gap pretty good.

    i'm not real good with this metric stuff here is why i'm askin this.

    A 275/45 or 40 would be a good tire size. I ran 275/45/17's on my 94 blazer lowered 3/3 and looked good.

    you are going to need wheel spacers also, the offset on the wheels is outward about 2" too much so you will need about a 2" spacer

    thanks, yeah i knew i would need spacers, but i am going to swap an ls1 off into the blazer and i'm goin to upgrade to the 4wd 8.5 rearend in it, if i can find one, so i won't need spacers in the back, just the front.

    also, thanks scrappy for the info, do you have any pics avaliable with it like that.
