Default Question about fitting tires.

I have a 1997 Chevy Blazer High Rider. The guy I bought it from when he got new tires, put 29's onto it. So, I'm trying to go back to original size. I was wondering how well 32x11.50x15's would fit, and how bad it would rub. I've been told by some that I will have to trim my fender flares and if I were to take it mudding, whenever I flex that they will rub and have a possibility of ripping the flares off. If anyone has any usual tips, they would be greatly appreciated. I just need to know if my new tires will fit, or if I will need to buy some with a smaller width like 10.50's. Thanks.

First, Chevy never made a High Rider. GMC did and only sold it in the Jimmy version in Canada.

Second, stock size tire for a ZR2 is 31X10.5. If you have no aftermarket lift and try to put 32's on there, it will rub.

Look at the sticker in the glove box to make sure you have a ZR2 and then go with the 31's if you want to go back to stock size tires. Also, you can look at the driver's side door sticker to verify what stock size tires your blazer came with.
