    hey guys, i need to know if i can safely run a 35x12.50 r 15 on my stock 1989 rims. (alum, NOT rally) if you could help me out id really appreciate it.

    also, the blazer will have a 6in BDS lift, will the tires rub a lot? any other side effects?

    thanx again

    If I am right those are 7 inch rims. People have done it but I wouldn't recommend it.........Dan

    they will fit, but it will pull the side walls in and "push" the center of the tread out. These tires will be better on a 10" rim. Generally you want the tread width and the rim width to be approx the same. This size tire has approx 10" tread width.(depending on maker)

    your right. I don't understand the jeep thing!
