    I'm lookin at the new BFG's KOS but I want to know what size rims I have-- and where you draw the line of measure fvrom on the rim? Mind you the rim is still mounted on the truck with the old krappy piece-o-crap tires....


    What ever it's worth...!!!!

    Swing by any tire shop and they should have a dealy that looks like a big measuring caliper that is usually used to setup the spin balancer for different rim widths and backspacing. They work with the tires still on the truck, too.Spent my lost youth breaking my back in the tire business..

    its most likely you have steel rims that are 7" its hard to find 10"steel rims on older blazers but maybe also I have 33/12.5 AT kos they are taller than standard Ats I found this buy buying 1 of each thats all they had.
