    i just got another blazer. It has 10 bolt fron and 12 bolt rear. I want it to be my daily driver. It has a 4" lift with 33's. What is the biggest tire i can fit on it? And what is the best tire for me to get? Im looking at 38x11.15 boggers, 37x13.15 boggers, and simialr TSL's and SSR's? What is the best? I dont care aboout street noise. I goto school and back and a little offroading, nothing big. Just like fields. When i say daily driver, i dont mean like alot. I want a truck that is big, and can go anywhere, especially offroad. Im in it for the look right now ( not enough money to go all out) what are your inputs? Do i need radials? anyone have bias on the street?

    <font color="green"> You can fit 38s if you trim like crazy, but they're a little much for the 10 and 12 bolts, especially in stock form. Why do you want boggers if you're mostly on the street? I'd go with a 36x12.5 Swamper Radial if you have to have something really aggressive. </font color>

    If it is your DD,then I'd go with a nice 35" BFG M/T or GoodYear MT/R.....In no way woud I suggest a set of Boggers.You might not mind the noise,but the tread life and handling you might.Besides the cost of Boggers vs. BFG/GoodYears would be a factor to consider.35's would be the largest you might be able to run....and they still might rub unless you are leaning towards cutting.Mike

    I've got a 4" lift and 38" TSLs, but it took a tube front and a load of cutting to make it happen. When I had my 36" TSL-R's, I managed to get by just cutting the front fenders massively and opening up the rear a little. You can see the 36's in the amarillo folder on my webshots. You can see the 38s in the jeep folder. Good luck whatever you decide to do.
