Default need new rubber?????

I'm looking to change the tires on my 97 Blazer 2dr 2wd. Right now I have 235/75/15 tires with the stock aluminum wheels. I would like to put on 275/60/15 or 255/65/15 tires. Will they fit???

i would go with the 255's theyre closer to your stock tires overall diameter meaning your speedometer wont be off as much. you might also run into rubbing issues with the 275's seeing as how theyre a little over 10.5" wide.

Yea 255's sound good, i used to have 235 60 15's on the front and 295 50 15's on the back of my 88 s10 Blazer but i had 15x8 rims on front and 15x10's on the back, it looked eighties style with half the back tire stinking out the wheelwell haha
