Default Tire questions

Ok I currently have 275 75 17's on my blazer and they rub when i turn or hit bumps while turning. Questions is what size tire can i go with that will eliminate that. Is it both the height and the width of the tire or just the height of the tire that is causing me problems.

Also i do not know how wide the rim is how can i find that out with out taking the rim off the car and tire off the rim.


Thanks

Brian

A 275 75 17 equates to a little larger than a 33" tire, and you have 17" diameter rims. As for the width of the rim, it depends. (Chevy puts a 7" rim on the Blazers stock) If you squeezed that tire underneath of a stock 98, you are guaranteed to have problems. The S-10 body generally only allows up to 31" tires stock and even then a 10.5 wide tire will rub depending on the tread pattern. (BFG AT's willrub the tie rodsdue to a wide raised tread pattern) I have All-Terrain 31 1050 15's on my 99 Blazer and have never had a problem. I would suggest decreasing your rimand tire size or lifting your blazer. Otherwise, you are going to wear down those tires very fast.
