Re: Any pics of lifted Blazers with 20" wheels?

I have no idea if these are 20's, but they are bigger than my stock steelies so they are 20's in my mind.

I believe he took off the big wheels because it made it undriveable due to poor braking and steering.

Re: Any pics of lifted Blazers with 20" wheels?

Just my opinion, but I don't think big diameter wheels make 69-72 Blazers look their best.

I agree. I don't think I'd go any bigger than 18" but that's just me. All good looking rides though.

Re: Any pics of lifted Blazers with 20" wheels?

I wanted 17" rims... but due to my big brake upgrade (and cheap CL wheel find) I ended up with 18's. The tire to rim ratio looks kind of off...

Re: Any pics of lifted Blazers with 20" wheels?

Anything over 17" look silly IMO but I'm old school. If your running a tire in the 44" or bigger it just takes away from the "classic" look of these beauty's. I'm sure I'll get some heat over this post but I live to .....

I believe this thread was asking for pictures of lifted trucks with 20" rims, not what people thought of lifted trucks with 20" rims.

Sorry Bouncytruck but he DID ask if we thought if they looked silly or not and I was giving my opinion on that. Read the original post.

(1tuff71) EXACTLY! ...... Plus YOU (bouncy truck) are posting trucks that don't even have 20" rims, and don't even know if they are 20" rims....

Sorry you all, I guess I was in a rare bad mood and my fingers started typing without a thought filter.

My bad. You all are correct, carry on...

Well it's extremely, highly, most likely, definitely, 100% possible that I was posting while intoxicated......

I concur! I cringe when I see 1st Gens with 20+ inch wheels.
