Default 31/10.5r15 on a 1991 S10 4 Door 4X4?

Hey guys, first post on the forum and likely more to come once I get back to the USA. I have a small question if anyone can answer it for me and give me a bit of insite on the matter. Currently I am downrange and saving some money to lift and add tires w/rims to my blazer once I get back. I tried to search for the answers the best I could but the internet is not that great out here obviously, so any help would be very greatly appreciated. My question is this.

I have a 1991, S10, 4x4, 4 door blazer. I will be putting a 3" BL, Cragar Soft 8's with 4.25 backspacing and +6mm offset, and wrapping them with 31/10.5r15 Firestone Destination MT's.
With the backspace and offset will the tires rub? If so how bad? My gut says I should be good but want to make sure before I start buying the parts. I can also do a shackle lift and T-bar crank if need be but I dont want to mess with the suspention if I dont have to.\

Thank you for your help in advance everyone, I am forever grateful.

You should have plenty of clearance with the 3" body lift installed. One draw back is that mpg will be reduced to approximately 13 mpg. You will need to replace the clutch fan and shroud with an electric fan setup. Best bet is to find a dual electric fan with built in shroud. "Lighting Strikes!"

Why exactly would I have to replace the fan?

Also I have a 5 inch lift and get 15 mpg in the city.

You'll want to switch to an electric fan setup preferable with a built in shroud because only the body will be lifted the three inches including the radiator but not the engine. Also consider that you will need to extend the lever for the transfer case.

I see what you are saying about the radiator and fan bigkhans. Instead of doing that can I just fab up a bracket that will allow the radiator to stay where it is instead of having to move it? Or would that cause it to hang and be exposed under the bumper?

I think just remove the bottom half of the shroud and you`ll be fine. Wont hurt to try. If it overheats then go electric

You'll need to trim both parts of the shroud to hold the radiator in place. There are some good options for finding a dual electric fan with built in shroud online or in a local salvage or breakers yard.
