    Does anyone know if super swamper 33x15.50's will fit on a stock blazer with no lift?

    they might. some blazers can fit 33s and some can't even fit 31s. It depends on your springs.

    Want to know what sheet metal sounds like when it is crushed like a tin can?
    I have 2 inches of lift and my 33x12.50 BFGs ripped up the lower edges of my quarter panels.

    I doubt something as wide as 15.5 will fit wiht no lift. My Blazer was fine with 33s and no lift but it has one now. They will rub the springs and fender when your turning.

    I have 33x12.50's on my jimmy with no lift, but i think a tire that wide will hit in the back, the clearance from the top of the tire to the wheel well trim in the back is less than the front.

    I have a 6.5 inch lift with 35x14.50's and they tore the hell out of the rear of my fender. I would trim the hell out of your fender if you are even going to think about going stock

    I have Mickey Ts 33x14.50x15 on my blazer with 2 1/2 in lift. Or so I was told is a 2 1/2 lift? doesn't look quite as high as guys w/a 4 in. lift . Plenty of clearence unless hardcore 4 wheelin. Springs are pretty damn stiff though. Maybe you should invest that $$$$ in a lift. Would definatley inspire you to get some 33s or even 35s once you have the lift. LOL. Just picture that bad boy with a 6in lift and stock tires. I think 33 x 15.50s would do some rubbin with the stock suspension.Either way your doin alright its a blazer/jimmy. Its all gooooooooooood!
    Peace

    33x15.5 will be fine with no lift if you only drive on the street and never turn.

    You could do a cheap 3" bodylift. That will get the looks for now and save the constant worrying of breaking to hard in a turn and so on...
