Re: Need shocks & wheels for ZR2
I've heard good things about the Rancho RSX and RS9000's and I agree the RS5000s suck! personally I run Monroe Expert Series on the truck and the HD yellows on the Blazer. I like the Reflex series. BTW Tenneco owns Rancho & MOnroe, so they are similar! I do 80/20 on/off-road. You have a Zr-2 so you probably have Bilsteins, are they any good? On your wheel selection, you should talk to Diver, hes away for a month I think, but hes got a Zr-2 and a Blazer and has the wheel/tire situation covered. Backspacing is key on these trucks as is correct tire&wheel width. I plan on installing 32's on my truck also after my 2" body lift (already have 2" sus) on 15x10 wheels whichever ones I can find with the correct backspacing to fit under the fender without rubbing too much. I plan on running SSRs. My stock 15x7 aluminums(4x4S10)wheels have 5" of backspacing, and I think ZR-2s have 6", with a 2" wider track width. You should probably go with a 10" wheel so the 11.50 will flatten out on the wheel.
Look for wheels with different backspacings. Theres an old post from diver on this page, look for it and get the correct info for sure. Good luck.
One question, you were running 32X11.5R 15 BFG M/Ts on stock 7.5" wide wheels?
Did the sidewalls really bulge out?
