Default Another tire size question

Hello People,
I was wondering how many of you members are running BFG All terrain KO2 30x9.5/15. Do you have any rubbing issues? Looking for some new shoes for my 97 Blazer 4 door 4WD

You may be able to get by with miner rubbing. Seems every one of these trucks are different

Like Newguy said, many people have run 30x9.5s without any reported rubbing, and some have minor rubbing. It really depends on how saggy your suspension is. Assuming you still have all factory original springs, they've been supporting your truck for 15-20 years. Some droop is to be expected.

I run 30x9.5's on my rig. At full lock, I will sometimes (rarely) hear/feel like it's rubbing...but it's nothing I can't live with for now.

Looking at that 2.5'' Rough Country lift...

TonyZR2 is an unknown quantity at this point

I'm running 31x10.5. You should see the polished ends on my swaybar.

I ran 31x10.50x15 BFG All-Terrains for years with a torsion bar crank, 2" body lift, and still a little massaging needed. Never had any problems with it other than limited off road capabilities...LOL
