The widest tire you can fit on the stock 15x7" rims is 11". A general rule is 4" wider then the rim. 4.5" is OK, however 5" is pushing it.

All tire manufactures have recommended rim dimensions for every tire they sell.

The biggest tire that will fit on a stock S10 Blazer is 30" diameter. The most common size 30" tires is 30x9.5R15. This is the biggest tire you can fit ont he stock wheels without modifing the truck in any way. If you go with after market wheels, you might have problems fitting 235/75R15 tires on a stock truck. The backspacing is critical on the s-series trucks.

Who makes tires that will fit? And which tires do I recommend from each manufacture?
BFG - All Terrains.
Goodyear - Mud Terrains
Cooper - Discovery ST
Interco - TSL Radials

i thought i saw somewhere that you could fit a 32" tire on non-stock(i think they had 4 inch backspaceing) rims with a 2 inch body lift. Anyone else seen or heard of this?

thanks
