    If I put a 14 FF in the rear of my blazer can I still use 15" rims?

    I doubt it since its a FF its an 8 lugger and doubt you got a 8 lug 1/2 ton axle. I guess you can use 15's but you still need new ones. Id go with 16's, in fact I did. [​IMG]

    Yes, you can buy 15 x 8bolt pattern in some rim styles. Not a real common size &amp; bolt pattern though.

    87 K5, D60 & 14FF, 5 sp & NP208 & 383 stroker. Build it Bulletproof and take it fishing!
