Default 1992 K5 Blazer Body lift and tire Questions

Hey, this is my first post on this forum, I am the owner of a 92 K5 blazer, he's my pride and joy, however, he is a a little short. All of the parts I have are stock from 92, nothing has been done to the undercarriage or wheels or anything. I am looking for a basic 3" body lift for my blazer, I was thinking something like this

Also, for tires, I am unsure about what to get that will fit, but won't make my blazer look too out of whack I was thinking

The tires I have now are Wrangler TD's....

Any help on if those tires will fit or not(with possible suggestions which will fit) would be greatly appreciated..Thanks alot,

John

A 1992 K5 came stock with 30.5 tires on it (well, 245/75R16). A 3" BL should be enough to fit 295/65R17 (32x11.5) tires. Just try to keep your back spacing similar to your stock rims.

Here is what tires you should be able to fit with a 3" BL:
- 305/70R16 (32.8 x 12) and under on Stock Wheels or 16x8; 16x10 (possible torsion bar crank and light trimming)
- 315/75R16 (34.6 x 12.4) on Stock Wheels or 16x8 (torsion bar crank and heavy trimming, or cutout flares); 16x10 not recommended
