    They will fit but they will hit hard into the firewall. I had 6" tc ez rides, 42's on 10" rims with 4" bs. (no BL or zero rates) It tore up my side lugs good on the firewall.... went to 52's to move the axle forward.

    I've got a question for you. Please tell me that your user name is not your SS. Hopefully it the year blazers you own.
    Nevermind I read your profile. My bad. :xmas:
