TrailMaster Lift

I've got an '89 S-10 Blazer w/ a 2" Superlift in now... I'm running 15X8 Nitros w/ 235/75/15 BFG AT's. I've got rubbing against my fenders. If I switch to the TrailMaster 5" will the rubbing continue? And if not, how big of tires could I run??? 31-10.50-15??? Please give any help or information possible and any pics of a Blazer w/ 5" lift... Thanx

Re: TrailMaster Lift

2dr or 4dr? Let's see I have a bone stock 89 S-15 ext cab with stock 15x7" factory rim and no rubbing with 31x10.50 BFG AT's. Your problem is like everyone else's, I'm sure. You have an 8" rim center set and the stock rim is either 6" or 5.5" rear. That means you moved the tire out at least 3" and it rubs. You will have to probably go up at least 3" to stop it from rubbing if that's the case. Go out, you need lift, go bigger you need lift. Go to S-10 4x4 and they have a tire/wheel chart that's not way off. Tom

<font face="Comic Sans MS">My vote goes to either swapping those rims for some with stock backspacing, or break out the sawzall or plasma cutter.

Re: TrailMaster Lift

First question is why do you need an 8" wide wheel with a 235 anyway? Second, you should have got a wheel with the correct 4x4 offset of 5.5" and you'd have no rubbing at all. I could lower my truck 3" and still fit 235s without rubbing(if I wanted to, but I don't know why i would?) If you do lift it more, I hope you get some bigger tires to fill up the gaps in your wheelwells. Good luck.
