    The wife has a 2000 2wd S-10 Blazer. It is a lease for 3 years. I figure that when the lease is up, the tires are going to need to be replaced. And I dont want to have to buy new tires and then give it up. So, I am going ot get some new tires now and then swap back to the original tires when I turn it in. So, my question comes to, what size can I fit on there?

    It has 235/75s right now. I think that measures like 28.5 inches. Can I get 30s to fit?

    I'd suggest staying on the safe side and keeping a 235/75 size. I used to own a 93 2wd S-10, older body style but should be close, with 30's that rubbed fairly bad. I ended up buying a pair of Dick Cepek 2" coils and some shackles to keep the rubbing to a minimum. Also, I think the newer body style trucks have less clearance in the fenders, don't know for sure. I figure you don't want to mess with the suspension on a lease rig. Hope this helps.

    I've got the stock tires on my '95 Blazer, and I don't see how you could really fit anything much larger without a lift. On the back, maybe, but not on the front.

    You could go with the same size tire but with a more aggressive tread.

    Git there fastest with the mostest!

    Because I am asking about larger tires, and stock they come with 28.5 to 29 inch tires. So why the hell would I want to go to 26.5 inch tires. That is why it was not useful.

    I wasn't really being serious...my s10 came with 205/70R14's or something like that. They were about 26" tall (and yes they looked lame). I put on some 245/60R15's (I wanted to keep about the same dia. so the weak 2.8 wouldn't have to work any harder than it has to all ready) on comaro wheels and the front rubbed some...I had to bend the inner fender to get them to fit.
