Default Changing tire size.

So right now I have 235/75/15 tires on 15" rims. But soon I want to get smaller tires so that I can lower my blazer back down (don't judge me). I was thinking about getting 215/50/15. Would there be any problem with getting this size handling or suspension wise??? I don't do any 4 wheeling or mudding either.

should handle better, better acceleration. fuel mileage may suffer on the highway, but may be better in town. if you aren't wheeling it, i can't see any problems. i would suggest a wider tire if you're doing that though, might as well make it handle even better. maybe 245s?
