    Hello,
    How high should the rim rating be on a 1985 K5 Blazer 4x4, 5.7L?

    i dunno but no one ever worries about it and ive seen over two tons of weight put in a 1/2 ton chevy with stock 15" steels and the wheels never broke, they did just fine, so i really wouldnt worry about it..

    plus t would depend on which wheels, thjere were probably ten different stock factory steel wheels available for trucks in a given year, wagons, rallies, etc so forth,, im sure they all would have different load ratings,

    but again.,,., who worries about it ?



    good luck

    Rims designed for trailer use are normally stamped such, otherwise dont worry about it. :dunno:
