Default Lift required for 31's with what I have

I have my stock tires still on my blazer and I want to upgrade to some BFG All-Terrains. I cranked my T-Bars and got about 1 1/8" in the front. The sticker on my new tires says 235/75/15 but the sidewall says 31.00X10.50" where as my stock tires are 235/70/15. Would I be able to fit these now or would doing something like an add-a-leaf be required so i don't have any rubbing?

first off, you got 31's for the price of some 235/75's?


sweet score! obviously somebody screwed up @ the plant.



clear up a couple of things for us first. you mention the t-bar crank, but make no mention of any shackles out back. forget about that end of the truck, or did you just figure we know you did them as well? (don't take it as i'm being an *** towards ya, i'm just asking for clarity)

if you did get 31 x 10.50's then you're probably gonna have to trim the front fenders, 'cause most of the guys that run 31's have mentioned triming a little with a 1.5 to 1.75 t-bar tweak.

you will probably be fine with stock rims and a tbar crank. the rear isn't as important, you can actually fit 31's at stock height in the rear. As long as you don't do much off roading or hit a bunch of bumps while you are turning you will be fine. If they rub excessively crank the tbars up some more. you shouldn't have to crank them to whole way to keep the tires from rubbing
