Re: how big can i go

without a body lift the biggest tires i would even try to put under it would be 235 75 15 anything bigger would rub .....You might be able to sqeeze 30 in tires under there but it'll be tight

Re: how big can i go

It all depends. When I first received my S10 Blazer it had 255/60/15 on it. It looked pretty good but the thing was slow. I put on a new pair of 235/75/15 and the tires look skinny but it has a lot more take off speed now. The 255's didn't rub at all when I got the S10 Blazer but they were worn down a good bit. And I am pretty sure 3ox9.5 would fit without a problem.

Re: how big can i go

if you do the math (or take out a tape measure) you will find out that the 235 75 15 are in fact 30's, thats what i run, no rubbing either, i accually want 31's.........

I thought that the 235/70/15 was 28" and the 235/75/15 was 29".

<font face="Comic Sans MS">rsharpe is correct 235/75r15's are about 29". Actually closer to 28.9".
