Help fitting 31s on gf\'s truck

Okay here is what I am dealing with. She's got a 98 S-10, V6, 5-speed, extended cab. I am looking a puting my 31" BFG M/Ts on her truck, they are coming off my Jeep with few miles on them. What would be a cheap solution to get the tires under here truck?

Re: Help fitting 31s on gf\'s truck

Assuming it's a 4x4, it's just like my '98 S-10.

I put Mud Terrains on it and the rear of the fenderwell rubbed so bad it pulled the metal splashguard up. I put on fiberglass fenders and a custom fenderwell to get it not to rub and still be water and mud-resistant.

This is also with a 2" body lift on it.

So if you have a stock truck 31" M/T's are going to be difficult to put on there...

Re: Help fitting 31s on gf\'s truck

when my 98 was small, i had BFG 31x10.50's on it. they worked fine on the road and did not rub at all, even at full turn. Off-road was another story, they smacked the [bleep] outa the top of the fenders,so i just put a 5in TM and a 2in body and that solved that problem. anyway what kind of rims are you running?

Okay, so even with a 2" BL it will still rub the fenders! Btw it is a 4wd and the rims are stock. Right now she's got 30x9.50s on that are at the end on there lives. I have only had the rub once while crossing a ditch (tires where new then), and it was the front drivers side that rubed.

Are the 30" tires stock on the 4wd? I have a '95 2wd and I want to put 30" BFG A/T's on but I'm not sure wether they will rub or not. They look like they might be fine on the back but looks like they might rub on the front. And isthe 4wd the same ride hight as the 2wd?

2wd is much lower than a 4x4. biggest i think you can go on a 2wd is 235/75/15... last I recalled, most 2wds came w/ 14" rims

the stock on a 95 blazer is a 235. The wheel size is a 15" not a 14" though. A 235 is 28", so its only 2" bigger, which is actually only 1" bigger from the center. I know the back has the clearance but Im not sure if the front will rub when turning. I may just have to do a little cutting.

I don't deal much with Gen IIs... MY mom has a Gen II 4x4 blazer with 205/75/15 uniroyals on it... And she wants to get it lower to the ground by hanging nerf bars off it... (I keep telling her the key is to go UP! UP! LIFT IT!)

Buddy of mine had a Gen I S10 2wd pickup... all it ran was 195/75/14s... couldn't use one of his tires as a spare to get me home after my spare blew out on me.
