    I was sitting around the other day wondering, "what would my stock Blazer rims look like on 32x11.50R15 tires?" I have the rims in my basement haven't bought new tires yet (income tax refund will take care of that next month). So I took a picture of a friend's Blazer who runs 32s (thanks Chan :wink1: ) and photochopped in my rims in place of the rallys.

    I had to take pictures of my rims at all kinds of different angles to find the right ones to match to this picture, but it looks pretty decent...

    If you had not of said anything i would have thought you changedthe rims. And put the tires back on and in the same location on the truck.

    I have seen similar rims in 8-lug on some of the late '70s 3/4 & 1-ton trucks in pictures only. Very hard to find around here anyways with the deep dish look. I'll bet Stockton Wheel can make them if need be, I almost had them make me set of 6-luggers when I came across the ones I have now. You don't see this look too often anymore.

    Here's the look I'm going for with mine...

    GM even used these deep rims before '73 too...

    Wow! Great job on the photochop! Like said above, if you put the two infront of me, I wouldn't be able to tell you which was the original...
