Exclamation 2wd wheels on a 4wd s10

Im thinking of getting a set of cragar soft 8s for my 96 s10 4.3 4x4 but as we all know the backspacing between a chevy 4wd wheel is very different from a 2wd. i was just wondering if i would have any clearance issues while turning in the front if i only have the torsion bars cranked. i want that wide look but i dont have the money to lift the truck yet. if i have to lift it would just a 2 inch lift be enough? and what width rim would be fine to go with? i think stock is 15x7 or 8 in 4wd? thanks again oh and i have 30x9.5 tires right now

Re: 2wd wheels on a 4wd s10

if you get 15x7 it will have a 4" backspace

so it will stick out 2 inches more than stock 4x4 6" bs wheels

stocks should be 15x7 as well

it might rub when you turn because the tires are out further now.

It will rub. Get a sawzall.

I had a 2in body, tbar and 31s on 15x8s with 3.75bs and it rubbed like a mofo. Rim width all depends on how wide of a tire you are going. If you just planning on stickin with 9.5in wide tires your fine. 7 is good up to 10.5in, so if you stepped up to 31x10.5 youd be alright with those wheels. Any wider and its reccomended that you go for a 8in wheel.

Re: 2wd wheels on a 4wd s10

if anyone has any pictures of what they did with their s10 or blazer post them so i can see. so if i do a 2in suspension lift with the 30's i should be alright with the turning clearance with 15x7 2wd wheels right?

Re: 2wd wheels on a 4wd s10

I only have a 2" BL on my truck with 2wd wheels and 33x12.50's. It requires some fender trimming to stop from rubbing.
