    Hey guys, new to the forum. Looks like a nice set up!

    I know this has probably been discussed, but I couldn't find anything using the search. I just got a 78 K5 Jimmy that is 2wd and the weenie tires on it have to go. I'm thinking of going with 15x8 Rock Crawlers with 31x10.5's. Will this combo fit with no rub? I'm almost certain it will but having no previous experience I thought I would look to the experienced guys for help.

    I don't plan on lifting it right now and NEED new tires as the ones on it right now aren't safe at all. Thanks in advance for any help!

    What can I say.....I'm a predjudiced Blazer fan!! If I started puttin' trucks on there I would never see an end to them. Blazers are special ya know....'specially the 2WD lifted ones!! Put a camper shell on yours and maybe it'll slip past the review board...... /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
