    10s with 5.5 bs no good :(

    well im ordering coy wheels and wanted a 20x10 5.5 bs and 295 40 20. So i put my buddys wheels on he has 295 35 19 on a 19x10 5.5 bs and the pass side is fine but drivers side hits the ebrake cable.

    So they have a 5 inch bs which should stick it out 1/2 inch more which should be good. Ill keep you guys in the loop.

    Are any of you guys running 10 inch wide wheels in rear with 295s?????

    On my 4 door there are 2 brake cables on the outside of the frame. The upper one the tire rests on it.

    Also since im notched now when I hit a steep angle driveway im sure the tires will rub on the inner fenderwells with 5.5 bs.

    So Im getting the foose nitrous with gray and the rears have a 5.25 backspacing which should be perfect. The 5 inch bs would stick out to much.

    Now how did you guys relocate your e brake cables? Had to get new ones custom made?

    Honestly, I've never had a Chevy with a good one. 91 S10, 02 Blazer, 05 Cobalt, and 00 Blazer. I'm sure I'll find out if Caddy is truly better than Chevy in a few months.

    Anyway, if you have an auto ditch it. I have family friends that swore by cutting all of their before they locked up. Not the best approach, but it works.

    Nah im over the bagging thing.

    I decided to go with 20x8 irocs with either 255 35 20/ or 255 40 20 front
    rears 20x9 irocs 275 35 20 or 275 40 20.

    The 9s in rear will still he wider and wont hit on full tilt on hills. Also ive put a 275 35 20 on a 10 inch wheel and you need a wider tire to make it look right. The wheel sticks out more than the tire lol

    Is this a truck or Blazer? I am running 20x8.5's on the front and 20x10's on the rear of my '01 blazer. I have 285/30r20's on the rear with plenty of clearance. ZZ4Blazer is running 19x10's? on the rear of his stepside with even bigger tires, and they both tuck with no rubbing. I think that I could get away with 305's on the rear of mine with the right backspacing.

    have a buddy with a 00' and he's running a 335/35/18 on a 10'' wide boyd hotrod wheel. Think its dropped 5 in the back, just had to roll the inner fender lip.

    The 2wd blazers have more space to work with than the 4 door blazers. yes ive done 315 35 17 on 17x11s on a 2 door blazer no probs but 4 door it rubs.

    4 doors have about 1 3/4 inch less space to deal with.

    Can someone please show me a 4 door 94 up blazer with 295s in the rear on a 10 inch wheel or even wider. The 94 up blazer 4 doors rear wells have less space to work with. What size tire do you have in the back of your truck?

    on my 02 4 door with 20x9 5.25 bs i cant go in anymore at all would rub with 275 40 20s but outside i have prob 3/4 inch max before id cut up the lip on the tire. But on my buddys 01 2 door he has at least 1 more inch to go on the inside and 1 on the outside.

    So what size tire are you running on your 4 door?
