    22" rim questions...

    Ive got a 2000 blazer 2 door, with belltech spindles and zq8 springs up front, and 3 inch blocks and xtreme leafs in the rear..

    will 22x9.5 rims fit with 30 series tires work..

    the tire shop im getting them from assured me they will :smoker:, but im runnin 8.5 inch wide 20's right now and in the back ive got about a inch on both sides of the tire till it hits something be it leafs or fender flare..:confused:

    anyone runnin similar setup with 22's?

    I don't how different a 94 is from a 2000 but I'm running 22's that are 9.5 with no rubbing at all in the rear and lil rub on left hand turns in the front! My truck is dropped 3" all around also with a 400lbs wall in it! My tires are 35 series also!

    Now granted I'm bagged and a first gen. I'm running 22x9.5 rim with a 30 series tire. I was dropped 4" all around and did fine.

    u did fine before you bagged it? How about on a 5/7 static drop? I'm going back and forth on a 18/20 combo or 22's on all fours

    I would rub full turn. I put in a bolt in notch for travel or course. A seven inch drop in the rear would be fine. U will have to roll the rear lip or cut it off. Five might push it. You can go with a narrow rim. Like a 8.5 instead of a 9.5. That would give you better clearance.

    It's all about the offset. If you get the wrong offset then they won't work. I am running a 22x9 with a +15mm offset and I don't get any rubbing at all. With a 22x9.5 you will need an offset of +18 to +20mm. I wouldn't go any further than +20 bc that puts them almost exactly flush with the fender well and you will run into issues.

    k well, i have 20x8.5 with 15mm right now and it seems to me like they sit really far in.. but only rub at absolute full lock and just barely rub if at all.

    Im going in next week to have 22x9.5 (what he has in stock at the store) IROC's test fitted.. so well find out.. but in the mean time.. my rims are for sale!!

    How about 20x10 with +15 in rear? will they tuck?

    i dunno, i guess depends on if your tubbed out... the 20's were bottoming out inside my fender wells with 2 people in the truck. Im running stock shocks, zq8 coils up and belltech spindles up front (3.5" drop) and 3" non-angled blocks out back. it seems to only rub with i go up hill on a driveway or speed bumps and what not
