Re: what the biggest tires that will fit stock?

I have 235/75/15's BFG mudterrains on my 87' S10 4x4, i get a bit of rubbing when making hard turns and hitting bumps but my rims a abit wider and more offset than stock wheels. I just gotta hammer in the inner fender a little and i shouldnt rub anymore. When i first got the truck it had Yokahama super diggers on it and they didnt rub at all.

Re: what the biggest tires that will fit stock?

i ran 32x10.5 tsl's on my 89 with no lift and stock 5 spoke rims. they didnt "fit" the way that people want them too, meaning i had to trim a little, and they would rub the frame and swaybar. but they fit with very little trimming and they rubbing didnt hurt anything so i just went for it.
