    Next spring I hope to get rid of the factory rims on my 84. I dropped by a local wheel shop and found a few styles I was interested in made by Eagle. Does anyone have any pics of their Blazers with aftermarket rims? It's always cool to see a picture of what the outcome will look like before you buy........

    Well, here we have Kelly Safari QTR 35x12.5x15 on CRAGAR Nomand II 15x10 steel/chrome.

    Good thing they are cheap.
    Sorry for rear hub cap missing, looks way better with them.
    BTW, 4" lift (blocs), yeah I know, get rid of the blocs!!!

    Here's a closeup of 33" BFG AT tires on 15x10 Centerline polished aluminum rims. Not sure of the "name" of the rim, but I love the look.

    Click on the "Photo Gallery" link at the top of this page, there is well over 100 pics of Blazers with aftermarket wheels.

    I have 15x10 Eagle 589s and they look great. Sorry I don't hve a pic but most Blazers I see have these wheels. The factory ones were similar because they both have 8 holes but the Eagles look a lot better.

    The best wheels I have seen are the American Racing "Gambler". Granted I have these on my Blazer so I am a little biased but I have gotten many remarks on how good they look. I have 15x9's with 35x12.5x15 BFG's on them. I have been told it makes the tires look bigger too.

    If it aint a Chevy don't raise it up!

    Burt, those are like the ones I just ordered, and I got a heck of a deal on them. One of my dads customers is giving them to me for $50 each. I can't wait till he gets them from the factory.
