I am looking to get oversized tires for the stock rims. I have the 4wd I4 trailblazer.
I have 20s for the summer but living in MI I kept the stock rims for the winter. I plan on painting them or having them powder coated black before putting on new tires.

I want to go with a plus size tire because there are lots of off road areas around me, unfortunately I also go on quite a few long distance trips so they have to wear well.

I am aware that the speedo will be off and I will lose some of my acceleration.

ANYONE RUNNING BIGGER TIRES:
How big can I go without a lift?? Suggestions??

Not looking to bust the bank, as I am sure no one is. Have heard plenty of good things about Mickey Thompson's like everyone else, but need a more street-worthy tire.

F.Y.I. Stock tire size is 245/70 16

Thanks,
Andrew

We don't think you're lying, but your choice of search phrase blows. ;)

Also, the offroad forum has a stickie you should read first. No search needed for finding those stickies.
