Not sure I can recommend anything in the price you stated. Nothing comes to mind at the moment. Though, I'm sure you can find some Walmart or Pepboys tires for that price.

To me, 'dinky' means 'small' and 'beefier' means 'larger', so I assumed the original owner had replaced the stock size with narrower tires. Sorry you weren't clear.

Perhaps some here don't know. Not all Blazers from all years had the same size tires. When asking for help, the more info you supply, the more help members can offer.
