Default 33" on my zr2

well they said it coulnt be done without a 6" lift or alot of cutting

well i dont have a 6" lift and didnt cut a thing!
33x10.50r15 bfg A/T

99 zr2 blazer
front i removed the front part of the flare thats it
front has 2" rought country lift.. keys and control arms
rear has 3" add a leaf and not yet install the 2" rear shackels im still workign on getting the bolts out... thats why there rear side bumper trim are still off in the pix... its making it ezer to get to the bolts.. i got one side done free and working on the other side now.. so the rear shackels are not on yet this is why the rear is still sitting low!

btw no rubbing street driving or at full turn







i still need to install the rear shackels and when the 2" P/A body lift gets here i will install that next weekend...

what you think?
i need more lift i should have ordered a 3" body lift and made my own bumper brackets...

i think it looks great....

i would be nervous with the front tires..it looks mighty tight. i think a big bump and you will get a rub or two. the body lift will help ya out there.

like i said...otherwise looks awesome, great work.

Looks great! I thought for sure you'd be rubbing at the front on the lower valance but if you're not...

Sigh... It's times like these I wish I bought a ZR2...

you go the 10.5" wide which most 33's are 12.5 inches wide that may be one of the reasons you aren't rubbing. I bet if you go off roading in it it you'll rub. your stock wheels are helping too. looks like you're gonna need those add a leafs you got a little bit of saggin going on

Looks real good. I do agree with Benedict, if and when you wheel it you may have some contact with the front valance. However you could always trim it down or remove it. Also, don't forget the ZR2 is already a bit higher then a standard Blazer.

I can guarantee you will rub off road on the inner fender at partial to full flex with the wheels cut. Trimming is not that hard and you won't even notice it once you do it. Keep it on the street and you'll be fine. You "may" have to trim a bit on the rear of all four flares, more so on the rear flares, again for off roading.

This is after the BL, btw.
