    I have a 87 K5 blazer stock Suspension. Using 235/75-15 now. What is the highest tire I can go too? With out adding any lift too it.

    33s, maybe 35s with a bit of fender trimming.

    depends on how much you want to cut, and how much you want to customize your firewall... Hell i bet you could fit some 39.5"s under there if you removed the fenders, cut the hood, and Cut the piss outa your Tub....

    I just put a set of 33x10.50's BFG AT's on my '88 with no lift and stock wheels, and so far so good. I haven't had them rub yet.

    with no lift and no trimming and stock rims (no backspacing) then you can fit 33's if you want to trim fairly drastically you can fit 35's

    My friend is runnin 35's on his stock K5. He has 15x7 wheels and that helped keep the tire out of the fenders.
    He hasnt wheeled it yet though.
