    So far I have a set of 15x7's all the way around. P245 60's in the front which is the max and p255 60's in the back. From what I know the widest you can go in the back is a set of 15x8's with a set of p275's 50's or 60's. It also depends on how low your truck may be. My blazer only has a 2-3 inch drop with spindles and leafs but I know i can still go wider. I need to with a 350. HOpe this helps.:bigthumb:

    I've personally seen a set of 295/50/15's on the back. I've talked to a few guys and they've said that a 325/50/15 will fit. It was awfully close though. One guy had to roll the fenderlip. You need to have the backspacing just right for the widest tires. What size rims were you lookin at.

    no rubbing? no turn radius loss? with the factory wheels? if so I need to find some 265/50r15s :)

    Do they have tires on them now?
    If not, just measure from inside lip to inside lip.
    If they do, take a pic and tell us what size tire is on there.

    If that's a 7" wide wheel, and I think you're talking about the stockers, then you can fit a 245/60-15 on there. You'd have quite a bit of sidewall bulge though.
