Welcome! Trailblazers have an absolutely unique bolt pattern of 6 X 5". Shared by no other vehicle of any time period. So you need adapter/spacers to make any other 6-lug rim fit. Those will move your rims out 1.3 to 1.5", depending on which ones you buy, but 15" rims are always a tight fit over your brake calipers. May work, may not.

I doubt 15 inch rims would fit, 16'' or better to fit over the calipers. I have the 16'' and I have less than an inch in between the caliper and rim.

I think 15 might fit over the rear brakes, but very unlikely on the front.

I run 15" rims. You will need to run 1.5" wheel adapters to offer clearance for the calipers for sure. You're adapters will also need to give you the correct bolt pattern. The wheels will also need somewhere around 3.5-3.75" of backspacing. A test fit is highly recommended, as not all wheels will fit. Before you venture into this, realize that your wheels/tires will really stick out.
