I don't understand what this means: 'Have everything factory just bought to do a brake job.'
In regards to your question on tires and wheels, how do you plan on using the 1996 Blazer? 80% on road and 20% off road, 50%/50%, ? What area of the country do you live?

He's saying his blazer is stock, no modifications and he's getting ready to replace his brakes.

Yeah! No modifications. Suspension and steering are all stock. And yes. Pretty much 80/20. I live in Dallas tx.

There are several factory sizes for tires on that Blazer, but the largest factory size is 235/75/15. You can fit 30x9.5x15's without any modifications. If you want a wider tire on a stock truck I ran 255/70/15's on factory rims for years. To go any bigger than that you're probably going to need to lift the truck and do some fender trimming. Check out the Lifting Tech section of the forum for lots of information.

If you are not into lifting it, stick with 235/75r15 and get better tire for traction that is good for the roads/trails you are taking. That saves you for any damage or wear. Nitto Grappler or Cooper Discoverer AT3 are good choices.

Oh. Trust me. I will be lifting it. Ha. But for now I was just looking into getting some decent tires for it. Checked the links you sent me and I liked what i seen. Didn't know they made tires of the size looking like that. And thanks for your help.
