Default 31's????!!!!!!!???????

I don't mean to double post, but for some reason it wont let me comment on the tire size thread on DIY. . . so, are you guys sure that a 31 x 10.50 won't fit on a stock height blazer... I see evryone reccommending a 30 x 9.5...... thats not much of an increase from stock..... your average 235/75/15 actually sits 28.9 x 9.3 x 15...... your average 30 x 9.5 sits around 29.5 x 9.4 x 15....... it's almost the exact same size..... so let me ask you this again, with a 1 inch front crank, are you positive that a 31 x 10.50 will NOT fit on a blazer with little or no rubbing?

Where did they rub at? if it was at the front of the wheel well it was probably due to your aftermarket rims... they appear to have a more shallow backspacing on them.... this could cause the tire to catch the front of the wheel well. . . . My 235's are almost exactly the same dimensions and I can't even make them rub off road. .

W/ a 2" body and t-bar tweak my 31 10.5s rub only on the driver side frame behind the tire, and only on the driver side fender behind the tire. I need to get rims that will get the tire away from the frame and then i will need to get my funders cut down a bit, then i should be good

30x9.5x15 are the biggest that will fit with zero rub if you arent sagging, 31"+ you need atleast a 2" lift.

I tried 31x10.5x15 and they rubbed before I ordered my 30's.

I've got 30x9.5 on stock wheels and they are damn close. They don't rub when I'm driving but if I'm turning and the suspension flexes the right way while wheeling then they will rub
I'm pretty sure kellen rubs on the out side back of the front wheel when he makes turns. Thats where lowbackspace wheel/tires will rub.

I thought it was just my suspension, glad to know its "normal" so to speak, the rub while flexin.

yep, thats where. only in situations like you mentioned, close to full lock and the suspension flexes pretty good. back of the front wheel well.

well, then I guess i'll do the 30 x 9.50.... I'm going to crank the front 3/4" to 1" to try to eliminate the rubbing factor.... I was gonna do the wheel spacer thing, but after the alignment problems sledneck16 had.... i'm not going to. . . because i'm too lazy to remove them before the alignment..... i'm also afraid with the bigger tire, that the spacers would cause fender/wheel clearance problems when the suspension was flexed.... thanks for all your help guys...

Cranked or not it will still rub under certain situations. Like when your bottomed out.
