S10 Tires
Plain and simple question i think can i fit 30's on a stock 4x4 S10('83) with little rubbing?

Re: S10 Tires
Plain and simple answer: yes.

maybe a little rubbing on the inner fender, nothing to worry about (or a mallet couldn't fix).

Re: S10 Tires
you can fit 30's on a stock 98 2wd I'm sure you can fit 30's on a stock 4x4 even though it is older

Re: S10 Tires
I an 84 S-15 with 30's on it. The only place it rubs is the torsion bar when you turn the wheel fully either way, but that only happens in parking lots.

Re: S10 Tires
I still have the stock tires I just got the truck this week. I am not sure the exact size I just know they are to small for my taste. I have 31's on my jeep cherokee and I love them. I cant wait to beef up this little truck

Re: S10 Tires
I have 3.73's in my '85 s15, and a 2.8L, and the 5 speed, and it seems like 4.10 would be the better ratio for the 235's I have, they're about 29" actual diameter i believe... The step up from the original smaller tires to the 235's made quite a difference... It does with a small engine, Just so you remember that gearing may be a problem for you... Oh, did I mention my 5th gear is totally useless under about 80 or 85?

Re: S10 Tires
FredBear I have Sears Trailhandlers (A/T or something). I would not recomend them. They're fairly loud for being a non overly aggressive tire. They're bad in the rain, and the tread doesn't clean out very well because the tread pattern is too tight. They do hold up well, I'll give them that. I've put 20k on them and they're not at their half-life yet. I got them because they were $407 mounted and balanced, should have gone with BFG's.

Re: S10 Tires
Had the same problem with my 4-banger Toyota. At least that's what the CHP officer told me when he finally caught up with me... The truck had stock 4.10 gears and I was running 31" BFG All-Terrains.

Now I got the Vortec V6 in my Chevy and have to be REAL careful to not the speed get away from me! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: S10 Tires
235's are a little under 29". 4.10's turn them just fine, hell it would even spin tire on rare occasions! The 31's put a knife though the little 2.8 heart though. Sandman, you said 5th is useless under 85. Ha, that's not too far from my top speed! I had it up to 95 once going down hill. BTW, I think driving a 4x4 over 80 makes as much sense as off-roading in a car, but I had to see what she can do. I don't use cruise control anymore because it can't maintain speed going up slight grades. I need a 3.4, bad.
