Screw it, use a bfh and put some 31x10.5 no point in spending money twice.

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.

87' S10 4x4 2.8L 5spd, BFG mudterrains
89' Chev 1500 305 5spd,
81' F250 4x4 35" BFG mudterrains, motor swap underway
87' S10 4x4 2.8L 5spd, parting out.
Now driving borrowed 02' Duramax 4x4.

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.

Just an old dad now...for now at least
