Currently the s-10 is all factory. Is there any way to get bigger "better off-road" tires on it without having to change much? I bought the truck for $100 so i'm not looking to spend a lot. I'm new to this off-road thing so You might see me ask a lot of questions.

Re: tires

If you give us the specs on the vehicle we could better answer your questions. But if you only spent 100 bucks on it I wouls say your best choice would better a saz-all or die grinder, or best is a plazma cutter if you have the resource....

Re: tires

Mmmmmmmmmmm, I love $100 beaters. If you want to take the easy way out then: 31's (on stock rims) will fit with a t-bar crank and a few wacks to the front inner fender with a BFH.
If you only have $100 invested then looks and resale value are prob. not very important [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]. You could always break out the cutting tools and start hacking away and fit bigger.

Check the local bone yards for deals on tires and rims, you will not believe what you find sometimes. Plus, if the guys are really nice they'll let you try on a few different sizes of rims and tires they have laying around so you can see what fits.

If I can fit 31's on this fine example of Japanese engineering w/o a lift, anything is possible. All the cutting on this fine machine was done with a torch. I am mighty proud, I only caught it on fire once. All recontouring of the body was done by the careful use of a 5lb sludge. It takes experience to use this high tech tool, so you may want to consult a professional.

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

Re: tires

YES! Cool! I love the $100 Beaters! I bet if you get some 15x10 wheels from a RWD GM car, and hack the fenders, 33's will fit! Then you'd need some gears to turn them though! Definetly go to the boneyard and get some RWD wheels though. Never a better time for a SFA conversion and a small block too! Maybe have a grand in it total! Possibilities are endless!
