Like to cook and read all the articles and forums. Just paid off the Trailblazer. lol Bought Tahoe Rear Springs with Ranch 9000’s. The front is a 2 inch lift with Rancho 5000’s. Hope this works. I have massive hours searching for 17 inch wheels. Probably will settle with Spacers. Next is wrapping it front back and sides with steel. I would just assume have steel wheels and a zero offset. Thanks for the Add

Welcome to the site! You can always choose adapters instead of spacers and open up your choices to all the full size truck 17's out there!

Bout 30 min from Cincinnati myself. Welcome.

I would definitely do adapters.

I’m from Middletown OH. Nobody really knows Middletown. I did a lot of single dirt bike riding in my day down in Kentucky. Hope to revisit those days with my Trailblazer. Found some -12 Fuel Wheels this week. Hope to put some 285 BF Goodrich All Season T/A on them just as soon as the lift kit comes in.

My Fuel wheels didn’t pan out. I found some Moto Metals -12. This will give me 2 inches of offset from the stock 39’s. The wheels I want are nine inches wide and stock is 7 inches. If I have this backed out right I believe I will miss the upper ball joint by 3/8s verticle up from the side of tire wall. My question is are spacers ment to move the tire out so we can make a full turn or because it would hit the ball joint arm? With the lift it just appears is not a problem. Also how much space do you have between your tire and ball joint now.

Welcome! I’m only about 20 minutes from you, I’m in Lebanon! I’ve had a lot of help from Kyle (Hardtrailz). There is a lot of people that are more than glad to help in this platform.
