    hey i have an 89 full size blazer and about 2 months ago i put on 2 new rear bfg all terrains (31x10.5x15) and now im hunting for a new set for either the rear or front. my question is can i put on the bfg same size mud terrains on the back where i have a posi and keep my all terrains up front? would this offer good off road traction? i really dont want to have to buy 4 new tires at least not yet but maybe in a month or 2 i would. thanks for the help

    If there all the same size , and all radials , I don't see a problem . Know a couple guys who did just that .

    I always thought you couldn't mix radials and bias ply regardless of size .

    Up until the mid-80's somewhere, chevy used to offer different tread patterens front and rear if you wanted on C trucks, but not on 4x4's. Well I can't see a huge problem with it, my gut says if you drive on-road alot it's probably not the best thing to do.

    get the new ones from BFG, they should be pretty close OD to the all terrains.you cant drive on hard surfaces in 4wd anyway so any minimal height differences shouldnt be a problem. if you had a fulltime transfercase then i wouldnt reccomend it.
