31\'s on stock 88 blazer?

A buddy of mine is going to replace his ugly street tires, and get my old BFG A/T, but would 31" tires fit on a stock 1988 Chevy Blazer? if not, what is the biggest tire he can put under there with out rubbing? Thanks

Here is a link to t-bar cranking. http://s10-4x4.com/EasyLift/

Using stock rims, the 31's will fit with either a t-bar lift or trimming the back part of the front inner fender.

Hit? Them tires rub. Rubbin's off roadin.

What part of the fender do you cut? If I cut this, I can put 31x10.5s on a stock truck? What do you cut it with and what do you fill the hole with?

No offense meant! but those shackles look a little scary to me, I would be worried about side to side leaning ( // ) or ( \\ )without a brace in between them the way the factory shackle is.

I run 30x9.50's and they rub at full lock. Not every S-10 is the same. I even put in add-a-leaf, and I DID crankup my T-bars a little bit , but not all the way. I don't like longer shackles either. Maybe its just preference but I'd rather go with a little stiffer ride and the add-a-leaf's......... Just my two cents.

I put 31s on my 90 S10 pu. They didn't rub at all in the back, but in front they did slighty rub the frame and the back of the fenderwell at half-lock going over bumps. That was with no modifications at all to the suspension. The rubbing wasn't enough to be that big of a deal though. I went for years with them.

I put my upper balljoint's on the bottom of the a-arm and then cranked the bars. On the back I just made some shackles and put an add-a-leaf in. Done deal and you still can use the stock length shocks.
