You guys have always been so helpful....

Ok I bought 2 22x9.5 Boss 304's. Now here is where my question begins. Im not sure of the backspacing, but they were on a 2002 blazer xtreme. I have the air over leaf setup with 3" blocks and im monoleafed. Will I have to cut out the fenders and the bed for this to work when I lay out. I dont lay frame obviously, but Im about an inch from the sideskirts. Also, What size tire should I run. With the wheel being this wide, i was thinking a 265 or 275 tire. Any advice would be great, i should have pics up by next weekend. (gotta get the tires) Thanks everyone

You'll most likely need to cut out your fenders. I don't have much.... any experience in that field, but with a wheel that big, your fender likely won't contain it. Best thing to do is put it on and find out though.

thanks everyone...BTW..no offence..but i seriously doubt that a 245 or even 255 would fit on a 9.5inch wheel. I might, but it would look lilke it was stretched on there. Im running pirelli 295/25/22 on them. THanks alot chuck, you are the man

i 265 40 22 is huge on a blazer. i was runnig those on customers ranger rover hse and the looked good. a good in between size would be a 255 30 22 on a 9'' wheel. it will work on a 9.5 but will be a bit strecthed. not good for pothole lovers:haha:

Mwahahahahah

Thanks chuck.. Got some pirelin 265/35s today. Now, for spacers, what is the smallest they make. I was thinkin I need a 1" spacer. Since the tire touches the frame. Lol. Any ideas?
