I have a 82 s10 that is stock ride height and I have a set of 1999 15x7 steel wheels that I want to put on it . What would be a good size to put on it that is at least a 235 wide?

Those wheels will fit too tight on the hubs unless you grind them out, if you force them on, they will be on forever. The centerhole on 97& older wheels will fit. (also, one other post said use 235/70/15, dont, they are too tall, will hit the rear of the front fenderwells on turning)

235-60R15 - lots of cheap tire choices, perfect all-around muscle/performance size for the money.

I know those will fit for sure. My mom has some on iroc wheels on her sonoma it rubs a little bit on the front when she cuts the wheels all the way but I can handle that. Thats the size I'll get if a bigger tire like a 245-60 won't fit. Those would probably rub pretty bad though.

I'd go with 235/70/15. used to work at a tire shop, seen a lot of trash go out the door. 70 series will keep the wheelwell full but will still fit perfect on a 7" wheel. that's the size I used on my 98 s10. looked great, if you still think that's too high, go with the 235/65/15, probably a special order but it's worth the wait, trust me....

I dont' want the lowered look I'm going for more the aggressive look. I think a 235/70 would give it the agressive look. A 235/70 wouldn't rub any more than a 235/60 would it?Thanks guys:thumbup:

Now how do I get them off to rotate the tires?

The wheels are steel. Yes, i did notice they went on hard. But I figured i would deal with the consiquenses later.

I don't know if they are directionals or not. They do have that swooping triangle pattern in them.
