Default 265/70-15

I have searched here for some time as we as done many google (web/images) searches and have oly found a few who have run this size tire on their blazers. My question is with a 15x7 wheel would this tire fit with a 2" BL without any other modification? I think the 30x9.5 tirs look to thin for the look I would like. Any info would be appreciated. I have a stock 2001 4dr LS 4wd... Also is anyoe knows perticular builds using these tire and has pics I would really like to see them!
Thanks in advance...

I am currently running a set that size right now on stock rims with no alterations. No body lift, t-bars are not turned up. So far it has been flexed some and the tires have not touched the body or trim, but I havent tryed to make them touch either though.

I ran 255/70/15 on stock 4x4 rims at stock height for several years with no problems whatsoever, including when wheeling offroad. I never even came close to rubbing the fenders. I did barely rub the sway bar on one side but that was mostly because the end links were shot and the sway bar was not centered. After replacing the end links and recentering the sway bar I had no problems.

You'll probably be fine, especially if you already have a body lift. At worst you may have to turn the torsion bars up a tiny bit to get the tires away from the frame when you're turning at full lock.

A little late to the party here... but that's a size I've been running for some years now, with these tires pictured. Never had any sort of rubbing issue at all. Don't believe I had yet messed with the torsion bars and there wasn't rubbing from day 1 of tires installed new. '01 with OE Z85 suspension.

Skinny tires = easier on steering, less rolling resistance, better in the snow and, provided the mud has a bottom, better in the mud.

Wide tires ... Guess they look good if you like the look.

no bottom? wider tires help "float" over sand, mud, etc better... I have had many different sizes over time, IMHO, tread style matters more for the terrain than width without going to extremes obviously.

I concur with what 'newguy' stated.
I was considering moving to a 16 for the winter set next and a 245/70-16. Close in diameter to the 265/70-15. I'm looking to see if I can find more than just 1 Blazer with pics of wheels/tires that size.
