Here are the parts i've narrowed down to get 4in total. Is there anything i'm missing? Can I run 32's with this?

32's will prob be a tight fit if you go wheeling alot but with Fender trimming you should have plenty of room most guys on here have one or the other with 31s and no issues

I do just city and highway driving. I may take it off roading at least one fours times a year. I was told that I can do 32's easily with no fender trimming.

What is a popular size for 32's with 15" in stock wheel? I'm trying to find that comfortable tire size for 22" wheels. I've been using all kinda tire calculator sites but none that really show me 30's to 32's.

I'm running 32's (265/70/17) with a 2 inch body lift and 1.5" suspension, and I needed to do a fair bit of trimming to get some spacing away from the fenders when turning. I seriously doubt you'll fit 32's without needing to trim at least a little, even if you don't offroad. The real kicker will be if you go with a lower backspaced rim then you'll be even more likely to need to trim the fenders.

32x11.5 15. I think it's the most popular

Very common 2005 was an odd year for the blazers, same as 98-04 if I understand correctly, and with trimming you should be able to get away with 33x10.5 tires

Have your bump steer checked after you mess with your suspension. There is at least one blazer here every month that has bellyuped his truck in a ditch and the one thing they all have in common; raised up chassis.
