4x4 or 2x4? You should post the details of your truck in your sig to help people help you.

a 30x9.50 tire will be the biggest you can run without any lift and how wide of a rim youll be able to run depends on the backspacing of the new rim.

4.5"BS is what i would try to stick to that way you wont be putting to much extra stress on the front end, also keep in mind that if your going to use a rim with less backspacing youll have to stick with the stock tire size unless you dont mind trimming/rubbing.

I'm running 30x9.5's now. They stick out a decent amount and beef the truck up. I unfortunately wore through my front tires due to a bad alignment, so I had to switch for general all seasons. If you want an example click in my sig below for pics of my old 30x9.5 tires. No backspacing or anything was done in those pics..just so you know.

ok...um.. idk if this is a stupid question.. if i get the stock size wheel the 15x7 that has 4.5 BS could i add spacers to make them stick out away from the blazer and not worry about rubbing and trimmin.. I just want the best setup wheel/tire wise that i can do.. you guys know way more than i do about this stuff..
