Yeah, it says the recommended tire size is 30s on their page... But if you decide to get that 2 inch ifs lift, with a little fender trimming, I think you would be able to fit 31s on there. If you're comfortable shedding some of your blazers fender, 31s are definitely doable.

Get a body lift. They're low priced.

I have just finished installing a 2" body lift from Performance Accessories on my 1999 S10 Blazer...very easy! The only modifications were during reassembly of the rear bumper (had to trim a bit of the frame for a correct fit), everything else was provided in the kit (oil filter brackets...ground strap extensions...front/rear bumper brackets...fuel filler tube hose for extending to the filler access). The only issue I have is a higher idle rpm now (from 750 to 950 rpm)...I am sure it is a vacuum issue, but I have performed a very thorough inspection and am still a bit miffed...anybody else had this issue after installing a body lift?

is your throttle cable pulling the throttle now that it's further away? My only protest to body lifts are that soooooo much of the frame is already exposed, it looks funny with more.

That was my first thought, but turns out not to be the issue. I will continue the search for a leak. As far as exposing more of the frame, a quick power-wash followed by a can black rubberized sealant looks really good! Cannot wait for the Black Wheels and Yokohama's to get here!
