    I am going to put a 14 bolt FF in my blazer now, along with a 8 lug 10 bolt up front. My question is can I still use 15" rims or do I have to step up to 16"s? What backspacing would I need to clear everything. I would use 10" wide rims.

    15's will clear the rear and to fit the front ya gotta grind the caliper and backing plates.
    for backspacing 4 1/4" seems to be what every one is using.

    my truck's not dirty, it's earth tone paint
