If you go with a lower profile tire in 16" you can have the same diameter as the 15's you have now. A 235/70/16 is almost exactly the same size as what you have now. A Blazer should have room in the wheel wells to go bigger though. Use this tire calculator to compare tires --- https://tiresize.com/calculator/

It's more about the tire size, wheel width and backspacing. Not just the rim diameter
