    HELLO I HAVE JUST PURCHASED A 1987 BLAZER AND I LOVE IT. THIS WEB SITE IS THE BEST SITE I HAVE SEEN FOR FULL SIZE FOURWHEEL DRIVE VEHICLES. MY QUESTION IS I REALLY DONT WANT TO LIFT MY BLAZER RIGHT NOW ANYWAY, BUT I HAVE 31X10.5X15 INCH TIREES WITH FACTORY 15X8 RALLY RIMS. WHAT I WANT TO DO IS PUT 32X11.5X15 INCH TIRES WITH EITHER 15X8 OR 15X10 RIMS. WHAT SIZE RIM DO YOU THINK WILL LOOK THE BEST AND BE THE BEST FOR THE VEHICLE 15X8 OR 15X10.

    if you are wanting to lift the blazer in the future and go with bigger tires. you might want to go ahead and spend a little more for the 15 x 10 that way you do not have to buy more wheels later. i am running 33 x 12.50 on my 15 x 8
    and (if i understand) that is the biggest tire you can put on the 8's.so if you want to go bigger in the future get the 10's, if not get the 8's. but then again it is only money!!!

    I have 33x12.5's on my 15x8 stock rims. They fit fine. If you think you may eventually go with a larger tire later on, then get the 15x10 rims later on. No need to spend the bucks now if you don't need to. Your 33's will last quite awhile giving you time to stash away enough for the rims later.

    You might also just stay with the 33's like I'm doing, because mine is a daily driver on the highway.

    You have options.

    sorry, my mistake. excuse me while I take my foot out. I thought you were going to put 33's on. The 32's will definately be no problem. But you do have lots of otions.
