    Finally got new tires on the blazer. 35" BFG AT's from Costco for $723.00 OTD. I'm real stoked. They are a huge improvement over the 33" BFG's I had on before. What do you all think? This should be a good comparison with 33' tires and 35" tires on a blazer with a 4" lift. The fenders are getting tight but I don't do the hardcore offroad like a lot of you all just the light trails and desert stuff so hope there won't be much of a problem.

    Before: 33" BFG's

    Damn, I just looked at the side-by-side comparison and I can't believe the difference the size makes.:D

    so close to perfect. but i think the rear axle needs to move back about 1" then she will be perfection. :bow:

    Yeah, there is something goofy about the first-gen wheel wells and the axles.

    ::shrug:: Clean truck though!

    Looks good, but I think you should have mounted the tires with the white letters on the outside.

    You know I thought about that but I did black sidewalls out because that's how the 33's were and I did not want to have to go through the hassel of switching them if they looked lame or a lot of people gave me heat for it. But thanks to everybody for your great responses. They should roll over those darn parking stops at the mall with ease now.:D

    I hate white lettering, blackwall is such a cleaner, tougher look imo....

    Nice first gen, that color is very similar to what my Chevelle was..

    Sharp looking First Gen. The 35's were a nice improvement. I love the all terrains for daily drivers
