    There is no such thing as a 94 K5. Do you mean a 94 K1500 Blazer? If so, I do not think that 15" wheels will clear the front brakes. Also, the backspace on 15" wheels is usually less then the 16" on the K1500, possibly causing premature wheel bearing failure. Otherwise, you can't hurt anything.

    i have bolted 15 x 8 ralleys on my 91 K1500, and yes they did seem to fit, however i didnt drive it for any distance with them on, so i dont know if there were any clearance issues.

    They should fit fine, I see many Z71's with 15x10 Alcoa look-a-likes and 35's runnin' around.

    had a couple friends run 15s on IFS rigs, one had no issue, the other had to grind a very slight amount of material.
