Default 1996 blazer tires

i have a currently stock 1996 blazer 4 door 4WD which i would like to put some firestone wilderness A/T's under. the tires are 32/11.50/R15.

what kind of lift would i have to put on it to make them clear? the truck will mostly be on the road with little or probably no hard off-roading.

my buddy got 33's under his 99 four door blazer with a 2" BL, bigger shackels in the rear which added about 2.5" of lift. and he put some ZR2 T- bars, and some triming. so maybe a 4" lift would be good

Depends on how you drive.

I have a ZR2 5" suspension and 1" Body lift with 33's and I rub on hard compression.

I would stick with the 2" body lift and either a 30x9.5, or 31x10.5 but may need some trimming.

Stick with stock wheels too, any thing with less backspaceing just make rubbing issues worse.

I think the only lifts kits you can get for a S10 are either a 5" suspension lift or a 2" or 3" body lift. The suspension lift kits for S10"s are big dollars and probably cost more then your truck. All my S10's I have ever owned I put 30x9.5's on them and had no rubbing at all, one of them came with a 3" body lift and 31x10.5's and did not rub either but it looked gay as hell seeing the frame that low...not my style but I bought the truck that way. Just get ya some good 30x9.5 Mud Terrains and you will be surprised at where you can go with it S10's rock
