Maximum Tire Size on 2000 2WD S10


Asked by CraigK13 Oct 08, 2009 at 07:33 PM about the 2000 Chevrolet S-10

Question type: Car Customization

I want to upgrade from the stock 205/75/15 tires on my S10.

Does anyone have experience with 235/75/15s

Basically I am worried about inner clearance on suspension components.

Not too worried about the 6% difference in diameter as I can live without a completely accurate speedo.

Hi i have a 1998 s10 and i upgraged to the 235/75/15s and over all they are a excellent tire only problem is when you turn really sharp it rubs just a little bit not much, but really you dont really turn that sharp when normal driving and also havent had a problem with inner clerance on the suspension, so if you want its a good choice since them are the biggest that fit on the S10

i have 235/75-15 bf goodrich all terrains on my 95 blazer and they have no issues at all, i have 235/70-15 general grabber at2 s on my 95 4x4 pick up and like tyler , i get a little rub with the full lock on a right turn like when pulling out of a parking space, but nothing on the left turn. i have them on the pick up for over a year and have rotated them and checked for wear and found nothing to speak of damage wise. you may want to check for speedometer error though, mine is off by 2 mph according to the gps. not a big deal unless you have some critical cops where you live


Is your 1998 a 2WD? If so, great answer. Thanks.

I also have a 98 s-10. Do you see any problems with me putting on a LT215 75/R15 on stock rims?

I just put the 235/75/15 Goodyear Wrangler Territory's (Canadian Tire only model from Goodyear I believe) and they seem to drive just fine but indeed rub a bit at full turn. I will look later to see where and by how much. 215/75/15s should be no problem then.

I see no probelms they should work fine


Thanks everyone. I just put the "special order" in and I'll let everyone know how they fit in a week to ten days.


my neice has a chevy s10 2d. and she bought it with 215 75 14. and it started to shift funny. like it was going from 4 to 5 gear back and forth. like the truck wasnt sure what gear it needed to be in. We brought it to a transmission spec. and they said because of the wrong size,(stock is 205 75 15) its throwing off the computer that tells it when to shift. they said that they put her truck on a computer to diagnose the prob. people put different size tires on trucks all the time. any thoughts......

i have 225/70/15 on mine and the only rubbing i have is the driver side front tire rubbing on the frame when turning the steering wheel all the way to the right, all the other tires clear the frame and suspension components just fine.
