Default new blazer, trying to get a bigger size than stock

Aight everyone, i have a delima. i just bought my new blazer, and i'm trying to figure out what is the biggest size i can get under a stock 01, 2 door blazer. Please let me know. Oh, and i'm just looking for an all-terrain, nothing too aggressive. Thanks!

what is the stock size that came on yours? there were optional stock sizes, going up to 235/75R15 (29.5")

the biggest tire you can put on with little worries is a 30X9.5, it may rub the sway bar a little at full turn, depending on how far your steering stop is

the size that is on there now is 235/75/r15. I'm just trying to get it a little beefier looking without going throught the trouble of lifting it. i was told today that i coud fit 31's. I'm still a little skeptical about that. let me know what you think.

Hanr3 has 31's I think. The problem is that not all Blazer sit exactly the same heigh, so 31's on his might not fit on yours. Typically, you need a susp. or body lift of about 2" to fit 31's without trimming.

There is a full writeup on what tires fit, its the sticky just above this topic. At the very top of the section.
