From Lifted to Lowered. What size tires?

Default From Lifted to Lowered. What size tires?

Hello everyone, my truck is a 1996 4dr 4x4 Blazer LS. Right now, it has 2in Fabtech Shackels in the back and a 1.5 torsion bar crank in the front. The tires are not the original ones it came with, they are now P235/75/R15. The rims are 15x7 Daytonas with 4in bs (fronts stick out a little). As of right now, my tires rub the bottom corners of the fenders only when turning onto uneven pavement (like entering a driveway, turning up a hill, etc.)

I am now planning on bringing the truck down to stock height, and then lowering it an additional 2 inches in the front, and 3 inches in the rear. I want to keep the 15x7 Daytona rims that I have right now, but I don't know what size tires I will need in order to be able to lower the truck. After looking online, the smallest stock size option on a blazer I found to be P205/75/R15.

I am thinking about choosing P205/70/R15. Will this size work without having any rubbing or any other issues? I would really appreciate any help. Thanks.

84BlazerS10 is on a distinguished road

I'm not sure on a 2nd gen but I'm running 235/55/R17's on my S10 and from the looks of it I should clear perfectly fine when I eventually lower it.
