Default 20 inch rims

For those of you that have 20's on their Blazer, I was just wondering what different tire sizes you guys were running. I'm undecided on what to use and every tire website I go to only shows 18" information. I'm looking for a size that will fit properly of course but without having the really skinny side walls (low profile type)if possible. I have a set of Granite Alloy 20x8.5 rims. If you have any good pics of your ride showing the rims and tires, that would be great. Thanks!

I would go for a tire sized around a 235/50r20 somewhere around there, that size will give you some meat on the rim and a cushion for ride comfort. I personally have a 225/40r18 on my rims but of course mine are the low profile type. So a lil wider and taller will give you a nice look and ride!! One other thing what do you plan on doing to your blazer after you put the wheels on it?? With that info you will recieve a better response, cause if you decide to go lower with your blaze then a smaller tire is my suggestion.

Proper tire size for a 20" wheel is 255/45/20.

Good point... I do plan on lowering the Blazer but not to an extreme. Just a few inches to take away what the larger wheels and tires add and thenmaybe an inch or two from that. I certainly do not want it slammed but a nice sporty stance is what I'm going for.

2/3 drop for ur truck... With that drop you have to run 255/35/20 tires. Stock height 255/45/20.. Anything bigger and it will rub.
