32"-33" for trailblazer? (new fr sweden)

Hi all

Maybe it's good to say in the begining that I'm from sweden, my english is thus not perfect, some times I dont find the right word or a way to express myself and my spelling would probebly not be so god =)

Any way, if someone are intressed Im as I already said from sweden, I work as en economic, and my 'Wife' (not married, but more than girlfriend) work as a laywer for swedish taxoffice (yeah I know, a pain in the ass =) )

How ever, I got a Trail home here who is a great car in all mods except for when it need petrol, (the swedish petrol price is about 1,4$ for one litter - about 3 cans of 33cl Coke)

Ok, now to my question, I want to make a lift on my car and make it possible to fit as big tires as possible BUT i still use the car everyday so it has to work onroad to, I have think about 265-75-16" or maybe as biggest 33"

my question is, what do I need? is it possible? what would be perfect for me? In sweden we got a lot of snow some months every year, and also bad roads, some times no roads att all =)

I find thoose pics at the web:







the KIA I just post to imagen how I want the tiers to fit and look in the fender (or what the name is, a translate from swedish would be wheel-house, understand?)
The silver one? anyone who know the options?
The blue one is a bit to extrem maybe, 33"?? something between there maybe

Hope you all could give me som positiv replays it's f*cking late here so I have to sleep now

Regards to you all!

Welcome

I have the blue Trailblazer, thanks for referring to it as "extreme". I know its not really (compared to some real extreme offroad vehicles) but its nice to hear in any case.

So far, I am the only one (at least on this board) who has installed the BDS body lift as well as the suspension lift.

Having 33" tires with only the suspension lift is not optimal because the fenders do get hit quite a bit (see the user Teebes).

I would probably recommend staying with 32" tires with only the suspension lift. Perhaps this size: 265/75R16

Hello! My ancestry is Swedish as well (three generations ago my surname was Carlson, not Carton)

I run 31.5" tires and have some other modifications for offroading. Look in my signature for my web site with more pictures, and youtube videos of desert and forest offroading. Except for the temperature, sand is much like snow.

Do you have the G80 automatic locking differential option? Very important for offroading with safety.

Why Thanks for putting me up there Joe. That's an awesome pic.

I also noticed one of the first pics of my lift that I put on the Site was in the original batch of pics that are up there.

I learned a ton from searching this site, and asking people who went before me like TheRoadie and AlekG. They were extremely generous with their time and information regarding lifting Trailblazers.

Side Note- Stopped by the Dealer tonite to grab a few things they owed me...Sales manager goes "Holy S***!! That trailblazer looks great!"
