Size Does Matter

always been a chev fan (sport truck), but as soon as an opportunity arised to own a 4x4 i had to take it. Recently obtained a 96 4x4 blazer, at a steal. With the money i saved i made it breath better with k&n's filter kit, flowmasters in the end have just about enough on tires. This is were the problem begins. How big can i go with stock height and rims. My friends say Superswamper TLS 29s 8.5x15 woulg fit, but what about the rub? needs answers, and SIZE DOES MATTER [email protected]

Re: Size Does Matter

I would guess to say that 30x9.50 would work with a minimal amount of rubbing. I had those at first with a 2" body lift (BFG All-Terrains) and there was no rubbing at all...

Plus, you might want to search around this forum a bit for older posts. There are a few guys/gals out there who have the same truck as you with the same questions...

Re: Size Does Matter

to fit 30x9.5 is gonna take a mild T-bar crank in some but not all cases (no two 4x4 S10s are the same when they roll off the line) 31x10.5 isn't unheard of either, but those WILL rub on the frame (I had a chance to fit one not too long ago on a stock rim... no body rub, but I never made it to full lock before making contact. tried one one a 2wd rim too... no rub through turning at full droop, and at ride compression, but after that it got nasty.)
If you don't plan on doing any body lift or suspension mods for a while, that 29x8.5 TSL should fit fine. It's just a touch skinnier than a 235/75/15. And yes, as JR said, it's always a good plan to look back through older posts. You never know what kind of information gems lurk beyond the most recent posts [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
