    I'm new to this Blazer thing and was looking for a liitle help. I am about to purchase an 88' Blazer with little tires and wheels. What would be a good size for tire and wheels for the Blazer which is stock at the time. And if a 4-6" susp. lift was added. Preferably wheels that would work for both setups and tires for the stock setup right now. Thanks for the help all.

    With a stock K5(stock axles), go with 15" rims due to a hugh nimber of tires sizes availible. You could run 33's with a stock setup, but will be really close to rubbing. I would say 32's for stock but those will look funny when you put the lift on.

    I would go with a 32" tire on a 15x10 wheel (that way after you lift it, you can get a bigger, wider tire and still have a wide enough wheel to accomodate it). You can make 15x8s work also, but I would go with the 10" wide wheels. A 33 will rub some with no lift, so if you want a hassle free ride with a stock setup, stick to the 32s...

    Of course, Blazen91 has been running no lift and 33s for some time, you might want to ask him personally how bad it rubs (if at all).

    I would go 33s on 15x10s stock springs. My friends have done it. On the 80s trucks without worn out springs, they don't rub.

    Good to see another drag racer. As for wheels you can use 8" wide rims with 33x12.5r15 with no problem. My buddy runs 33x12.5r15 on 7" wide wheels. I am running my 35x12.5r15s on 8.5" wide wheels. We do this because it keeps the bead protected when we go out rockcrawling. If you dont do rockcrawling then you could go to 10" wide wheels. As for tires I would wait untl after you lift it because 31s on a 4" lift looks kinda funny. I would go woth either 33s or 35s after you lift it 4-6".
