i think dubz would look tight, they will fit if you are stock height easy. make sure its the right bolt pattern and backspace and all that other wheel crap for your jimmy first though

Are the Eagle 212s made in the approperate size and bs?

Hey 98nos, do you still have the control arms of the blazer?
if so wanna sell them?

2nd, all yall with these lowered blazers, once you add a 2/3 drop how is the drive, same as factory, better?

No i dont have the a arms anymore. id do spindles and 3 inch springs front and rear 3 inch leafs and 3 inch blocks because a 3 4 drop wont look right with teh size tire you are running. plus the blazers sit higher than s10s.

we have close to a 6 7 drop on ours and you can see its not that low. if you can go with a 5 6 drop will ride like stock pretty much and everything with shocks will be close to 650 bucks so you know. but a 4 5 drop will be to low

98 up blazer sit totally differnt than a 97 under there body mounts are bigger

so here we gooooooooooooooooooo...............
if you go with 20s 20x8 4.5 bs 245 40 20 on a 4 5 drop will do it perfect

ok on stock 2000 2 door blazer non x with 235 70 15 tires its at 32 3/4 front and rear is at 34. the tires on a stock truck at 28 inches tall

a belltech 4 5 drop drops it close to a 5 6 (dont worry wont need a notch)

so your at 27 3/4 and 29 rear about after the drop.

as you can see i have 255 45 18 which are 27 inch tall tires on the blazer x and im at 25.5 and 25 3/4 at fenderlips so if your not at least at 26.5 will look funny, so a 255 35 20 which is the same height at 255 45 18 will have gap.

a 18x8 4.5 bs with 255 50 18 is also 28 inches tall so boom now you have no speedo problems and the tires have protection from bumps.

but hey you want to be bad ass and get 20s lol noooooo problem let tony take care of this situation.

20x8 4.5 bs 245 40 20 is a 27.7 inch tall tire. its almost the same as stock and you have some sort of protection.

now you say ok but my ***** tony how much is this gonna cost me

let me break this shiznit down
stock tire 235 70 15 28 inches tall
255 50 18 28 inches tall 216 bucks from tire rack
255 45 18 27 inches tall 150 bucks from tire rack
245 40 20 27.7 inches tall 267 from tire rack
255 35 20 27 inches tall 223 each from tire rack

there you go bro. now the 27 inch tall tire will have gap. the blazer x has those fender flares which makes it loook lower.

if i were you drop it 4 5 and go with a 255 50 18 all around you shoudl be set or if you want to be a sav about the situation go with a 5 6 drop and go with a 255 35 20. but the only way you will make it look right is if you go with a 5 6 drop if you go with a 255 35 20 or a 245 35 20 butt a 245 40 20 will be fine with a 4 5 drop my little niggie.


this ***** tony is out of here peeace ... and remember stay black
