    Hello all. First of, I'm new here so hello. Sorry if I do something wrong. But anyways. I'm looking around at getting a used Blazer for bad weather/light offroading. And I need your advice.

    I found this vehicle for sale in a local paper:

    CHEVY BLAZER FULL SIZE '89 4x4, AT, 1 owner, 32K
    on new 350 motor, good cond., $3,500.

    I stopped by and took a few pictures of it: (i'll just post the links so this post will be dial-up friendly)

    Left Front wheel well
    pic 3
    Left Rear Fender / Muffler

    The tires are close to bald so I would have to put new tires on it soon. If so, what would be the largest tire I could fit on it with the stock height. Right now it's got some small 30x9.50r15's. Would I be able to fit 33x12.50's? I wouldn't be doing any extreme flexing. (at least not right now /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif) And I would remove those running boards.

    So what do you guys think? Thanks ahead of time.

    Steve

    the truck looks great. check over everything for rust, especially the rear floorboards.

    Yes, 33x12.50s SHOULD fit, but will rub with a decent amount of flex.

    removing the running boards is definitely a good plan, IMO

    and u didnt do anything wrong that i can see. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif good work! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    yeah, assuming the engine/tranny/tcase arent toast or damaged, 3500 doesnt sound to bad at all. body certainly seems to be in good shape. 33s oughta fit without to much trouble, especially with the ASB attached.
