    Anyone running 255/55/17s?

    I have a 96 blazer 2wd, 4dr, lowered 2inches front and back. I picked up some 17x9 Camaro SS wheels and want to get a nice meaty looking tire to fill the fender space. Anyone got any pics of 255/55/17 tires? Thanks.

    If you want meaty go bigger than 255s. I had those in a 16" rim and wanted more width

    some 275's would fill that tire nicely. i got them on my 17's but they are 8 inch rims unfortunatly so they dont fit as well as they should.

    If i went with a 275 would i need to go to a 50 series tire? Also would they work on the front with out any rubbing? I dont have dropped spindles just coils.

    stagger your tire widths, what you need to do is go to a place with a tire size chat, such as tirerack .com and they list ALL the tire sizes and you go and pick a skinny and a wide tire that has the overall height you want and width.

    im running a 225 in front on mine and a 275 in back and i have different series tires so they are the same height.
