    Can anyone help me. I need to put a swing out tire rack on my 91 (Full size)Blazer-but I can't find one that can be mounted! I see them all the time on other Blazers. Which one can I use, without replacing my bumper? I want to mount my 35" tire on the back! /forums/images/icons/confused.gif

    two bad things about stock tire mounts. One is that a 33 is by far the max size to run on the rear rack due to the weight of the tire. The second flaw is that the tire will easily dent the rear quarter panels from swinging out to far uncontrolled. Your best bet is to roof rack it or put on a bumper rear tire mount or lay it flat on the floor in the rear.
