    Im not following, why can't you just remove a current wheel/tire and try mounting up one of the new wheels (minus the tire as its not mounted yet) just to see if it will clear? With a 4.5" BS and 1/2ton brakes, I suspect they will work fine.

    edit: btw I think I have a set of the same wheels,they look just like those in the pic only chrome (and well, rust now too) and 6-lug. They came on my 73 blazer when I bought it, they cleared the 1/2-ton stuff just fine.

    Here's a simple idea:

    Why not pull one of the existing wheel/tires off and measure the backspacing on it??

    If it's close to the new wheels, it will probably work fine. A little bit of time under the truck studying how much clearance you have around the existing calipers and tie rod ends will also help you decide....

    IM aware of that.

    I was responding to what he said.The new tires and rims are 16, and the old ones are 15, therefore i will probobly end up just doing what he said, have the tire shop mock one tire (the new ones)up with a wheel,and seee if it will all go together.Withought hitting anything

    Okay, so one set of wheels are 16's and one set are 15's... still not following why this means you cant simply try bolting on one of the new wheels to see if it will fit...? What needs to be mocked up? Just bolt on one of the new wheels (minus the tire) and see if it fits.
