Largest tire

What would be the largest tire that I can run on a 02 trailblazer with the 2in BDS lift kit and the 1.5" wheel spacers at each corner? I think that a 31x10.50 should fit with no cutting of anything. I do plan on using the stock rim cause the lift and tires will keep me from getting new rims at that time but some will be in the works hopefully.

I had to cut part of the back edge of my front bumper between 3/4" and 1" to clear 31.6" tires / 10.5" tread width (265/70-17). So I predict the largest size you could do with a good shot at zero trimming would be 30.6". Maybe I go too far to mod mine for offroad, but I don't see why trimming is such a bad thing. Are all these vehicles on lease, or don't people intend to keep them for ten years? It's not like the bumper cover is metal or anything.

I have been running Dayton Timberline tires at 265/75R16, with a 1.5 inch spacer/adapter on stock rims and without a lift kit and no trimming for the past 3 winters.

No rubbing on turns and only very slight rubbing on deep compressions. Dayton says their tire is 32" but that may not be 100% accurate.

Yes, yes, i know I am late with my 33" tire write up

Bigger Tires:

I want to get larger tires for my 04 Envoy, 255/70/17 or 265/70/17. Does anyone know if the 70 series tire will fit without a lift kit. My Envoy is stock height and am willing to do the wheel spacer if I have to. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I run 265/70-17 and used to have the 1" SuspensionMAXX spacer (around 1.5" effective lift) and if I hit an offroad bump too fast, I could hear (and see scuff marks later) slight rubbing on top of the wheel well liner. If you don't go over hard, full-compression bumps or whoops-see-doos in the sand, you should be fine without a lift. Now with the bigger BDS lift kit - no rubbing ever.
