Those are one of the top rated tires for the blazer. i went with 255/70 falkens and im very pleased. those should fit ok with maybe a lil rub on a full turn.

Unless there is something different about the 30x9.5, they should be fine even on a full turn. I used to run with that size MTR's and had no issues on full turns ext. But then again, there is a first time for everything. hehe

30x9.5 = no rub on stock rim with stock suspension

Although I must say, that price seems a bit high to me, but I suppose it's on par for a tire dealer with no sale running. What's the certificate for free replacement? Is that road hazard protection?

Treadepot has the same tire in that size at 117/tire, which makes it $468 for the rubber, then price out about $80 (sears) for mount/stem/valve/lifetime balance. Total of $548 'out the door' going that way, just no road hazard if that's what you've got up there

but thats for 5 tires, discount tire is $14 per tire less, and if i wanted to get rid of the warranty ($12 per tire)(free NEW replacement if one ever gets mangled beyond repair)(which i thought was a good idea if i go offroading and hit a sharp rock or something)

Ahhh forgot about the 5th tire! Pretty good deal then!

And you might want to read the fine print on the extended warranty coverage before you spend 60 bucks on it...make sure it covers off road usage!

DO NOT GET THESE TIRES FOR OFFROAD!!! I cannot stress that enough. They are probably one of the best onroad tires out there for trucks but they TRULY suck offroad. They came stock on the ZR2 blazers and I couldn't wait to get rid of them. If you only plan on doing mild offroad but mostly staying on the pavement you'll be fine. If you plan on getting into anything nasty, go with a true AT.

yeah, i dont do too much offroading, just the occasional drive through a bunch of muck on the farm if i need to take stuff to the barn out in the fields ( i got stuck in the mud a couple times and had to use the F-150 to pull myself out) (so... i decided to buy new tires haha)

You might want to consider the BFG Rugged Trail T/A. It's one step closer to an A/T but still has the on-road manners of a road tire.
