    Ok, I am going to go with Super Swamper LTBs. I don't drive the Blazer everyday, mabe once or twice a week. Once or twice a month I do go on 80-100 miles trips to the mountains to go crawling. I have a 350 v8, 10 bolt rear & front with 3.08s and a TH700r4. I am also ordering a 4" rough country lift next week.

    Should I do 33x12.5 15 or 34x10.5 15?? I will be running these on stock 15x8 ralley wheels.

    You and your transmission will be wishing for lower gears either way, but I voted for the 34x10.50's

    I am hoping the 34's won't be too bad, if I go that route. Actual size from the Interco website shows that the 34"s are 33.6" in diameter.

    I voted for the 33x12.50's. Sorry, but I'm a fat-boy when it comes to tires. I have Interco's new 15x39.5x17 TSL's and as happy as I am with them, they still aren't FAT enough. I would like to have either 16 or 18 wides. Just a better footprint for wheelin'. But that's me! :wink1:

    Hello Franco82!
    Ditto on what Slapperbar said. I will most likely go with those 34's myself when current tires are done. My blazer is set up like yours and I am definitely going with 4.10's in the future. By the way, I grew up in Sandiggy ('56-'89). Spent a lot of time in Ocotillo wells on dirt bikes and mini-trucks. Loved the desert but now that I am in Placer county I have to take a more Rubicon approach to things as I prep my truck. Anyway, have fun down there! I have many fond memories of offroading in SoCal.

    Save time...just go with 40's right off. one tons, 5.13's, X-over with hydro steer, doubler, King coils etc etc...then you will really be ready to take it camping or fishing. :haha: :haha:

    In a choice between them I would go 33x12.5x15. Better to have 2 inches wider than an inch taller :wink1:

    since you are looking at LTB's why not go right to 47's? Or if you go right to 54" boggers then you won't have to get the next bigger size when they wear out since they already are the biggest.

    I voted for the 34's. But 35-12.5's on a 10" wheel look nice.

    I agree 100%. I am going to go with 35x12.5 15. I will regear soon. I think these should go fine on my stock 15x8 rallys? I don't do much sand, unless I cruise Fiesta Island. I do mostly trails w/rocks.

    Tell me aboot it I am stuck with 37s cause I cant afford my Kewl guy 42s with 5.13s right now:doah:. Maybe within the year I will have it done, then it is an NV4500 with some form of dual case setup or a stak 3 speed. Man it never ends:D. Just wait Franco it will soon be you too:D.
