Okay, I want to keep the suspension stock, no lifts or anything.
I have a 1996 Chevy Blazer 4x4..

But I do want some more aggressive tires and better looking wheels.

I was looking at rims and I like the

American Racing AR-767

and I was looking at Tires and I like the

Goodyear Wrangler MT

But I have no idea what sizes I will need...etc..

Thanks

Stock size would be a good start with no lift.

if you dont have a ZR2, i believe stock size is 265/75 R15, but i could be wrong. unless you go mudding a lot, dont get MT tires, hey just wear out quickly (compared to an AT tire) on the road. Something with a tread like the BFG AT would be a good choice for on/off road traction.

Stock size is 235x75x15, a 265x75r15 is the same as a 31x10.5x15.

I was looking at TireRack.com and all they listed for 15's were some crappy AT's, I didnt like the look of them..

Is there somewhere else I can look?

EDIT:

Okay, TireRack offers 3 different sizes of tires.

205/75-15
235/70-15
235/75-15

Will all of these fit on my truck? Because im looking at the Bridgestone Dueler A/T REVO, and they only come in 235/70-15 & up.

235/75/15s are stock tire size for 4wd s-series trucks. use a 15x8" rim. 15x10s can make it too wide and they can rub with the wider rim. i got 235/75/15 bridgestone dueler ATs on my bravada on stock rim and i like em alot. great snow/wet weather tire. havent tried the revos just the reg ATs. this should be posted in the tire/wheel thread btw...

I tried posting in the Tire/Wheel thread..no one would reply.

Okay, the stock tires on the blazer are 205/75R-15. That's what's on the truck right now.
I like the Bridgestone Dueler A/T REVOs..and I'm pretty sure they will fit..but I dont know which size.

Here is a link to the Tire sizes:

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/Spec.jsp?make=Bridgestone&model=Dueler+A/T+Revo

I can either go with a
225/75SR15 or 235/75SR15

I think the 235/75SR15 is the best bet because it's made to fit a 6.5" wheel, and I have a 6" wheel (right?)

Suggestions are welcomed :)

I have had two s10's now. One was a 87 extended cab 4x4 with a 2" boby with 30x9.5x15's on it. The other is my current 99 zr2 extended cab with rite now 30x10.5x15" super swamper tsl radials. I got em' cheap thats why I went down on the size ( 150$ all four ).


On my 87 to fit the 30's I needed the 2" bl for claerence issues. I think and I might be wrong but I think that a 30" tire is equal to a 275. So the 235's that you are looking at sould fit without any mod's. 235 I think is like a 28" tire.


Hope this helps

If you have a four wheel drive the stock wheels should be 15"x7" and have 6" of rear spacing.

The OEM optional offroad tires are 235/75-15 (just under 29" dia.) and should work fine with only minimal rubbing during hard articulation , with the wheels turned. (personal experience)

Now if you buy aftermarket wheels with less rear spacing , be prepared to have issues with rubbing, potentially.

The manner of driving will have to play into your decision too. If you never offroad you can get away with closer clearances.
