    Wheels

    Hey man, I have a 88 blazer. I am wanting to put 20's on the rear and 18's on the front it has a 2/3 drop i think thats all. When i got it the springs were heated i replaced them with stock springs and drop belltech spindles and the back has 3" blocks i dont know if the heated the leafs or not, and I might drop it another inch all the way around. What tire size should I use. And also what width rim and backspacing? I love a big deep lip, but I don't want them to stick out too far and chip my fresh paint, flush with the body is fine with me though. I don't think I will ever bag it.

    Thank you,
    Lance Wayne.

    I have no idea about backspacing or offset but I ran a 35 series tire on my 20's.

    Will this help you?

    Stock tire diameter is 27"
    So, for the front with an 8" wide wheel you would need 4.5" backspacing and a 245/45-18 tire. BTW, my front barely rubs the frame and inner liner at full lock with this tire size and backspacing.
    Rear, with an 8.5" wide wheel you would need 4.75" backspacing and a 255/35-20 tire.

    They're the only ones I know of that make custom rallys.

    You can get whichever centercaps you want, if that's what throwing you off.

    I seen that they offered different caps, but they don't look like the have any depth to them at all. I mean they don't have much of a lip and the center looks like a solid and flat chunk of aluminum.

    That's how a corvette rally wheel is.

    the ones in the photoshop are the disc brake caps and way out of proportion being that its just an computer enlarged photo of a 15 inch rim, and the disc brake caps look like shit IMO anyways, those vette caps are the way to go

    The ones in the picture look like the steel corvette rally wheels
    http://wheelvintiques.myshopify.com/...llye-30-series

    Check this place out.

    Your best bet though is to call both of these places to see what if any options are available in the sizes you want
