    Ok i can't decide on what type of tires i want to get and i need some input. My blazer has a 6" lift right now and it will be a daily driver, but also for some mild off-roading. What brand of tire and size would anyone recommend for these condtions? Thanks for the input, really appreciate it!!

    35x12.50r15 Goodyear MTRs. They are awsome tires. They hold up milage wise work awsome offroad in any condition mud or rocks. If you go any bigger than 35s you will definatly have to cut fenders.

    Got rid of a set of Goodyear Wrangler AT tires (33 X 12.5 X 15) as they never seemed to hook up in any conditions other than dry hard-packed dirt roads. Bought some BF Goodrich AT KO's (also 33 X 12.5 X 15) and they have been a great choice so far. They even work on ice. Couldn't fit 35's without modifying the fenders and with all the rust, I'll just wait until I wear these 33's out.


    I don't know everything, I just think that I do.............

    I have a 6in lift with 35x12.50 BFG muds. They are pretty good imo, Good daily driver too. I want to upgrade to 36x12.50 TSL's but i think id need fender trimming. Go for the new KMS i heard they are good on the street and even better off road.
