    I am running 35'' pro comps right now with a 6'' lift but want to get an idea of what my blazer would look like with 37's( doesnt matter what kind ). Plus if anyone is running the 39.5 iroc radials with a 6" lift I would love to see those also.

    As long as we're hijacking this thread - how much cutting did you have to do, do you have any rubbing problems and what size/offset wheels are you running?

    I had to cut about 1" off the top of the fenders and about 2" off the rear and I can make it rub,I am on the look out for some 4" lift springs for it because I need 2 more inches and I dont want to give up my inner fender wells. The rims are the stock ones that came on the truck

    Ok never mind, I just saw your build up. So that is the blue blazer you have been working on? Have you got it running yet?

    what back spacing are you running. Just curious I'll be going to 38.5 " boggers and they are 15" wide, I have 4" right now Just worried it will hit the tie rod.

    Those are 15x8 wheels with 4.25" backspacing, It took alot of grinding of the calipers to get them to fit. But I like my tires tucked back under the truck.

    I am at N Fry rd. @ Morton, More like Fry and I-10. The K5 is still not running, need to run the new wire harness, but need to finish the interier first. Send me an email texasmuddslingers@houston.rr.com, lunch or just to hang out is cool.

    So does anyone have any regrets running 37" thinking they should have gone bigger? Plus how do the radial irocs run on the street and how long do they last compared to the ssr radials?

    Never run Iroks but I think you are better of getting the ssr's. Should get many more miles out of them since the tread width is not so far apart.
