    i'll try this again since the site was f**ked up for a few days-

    will 10" rims fit on a 4" lift with 35's without cutting the fenders?

    i've always ran 8" rims before with this combo without any problems, but like the look of the wider rims

    any of ya'all have pics of this without cutting?

    4", 35's, 15x10's...no rubbing...no trimming...yet. I have smacked the back of my right front fender but that was only during some hard playing in the mud, hit a rut that I couldn't see.

    from what i've been hearing, the 10's stick out from the fenders, but they dont look they do on your rig at all....def, looks good:D

    This may sound stupid but honestly I'm not sure. I ordered them from Summit and told them what they were going on and they sent them. My guess would be 4.25". The front sticks out just a tad more than the back but that is normal for a Chevy as we all know.

    Edit: Just pulled up the receipt. Part #MTT-350411, if that helps. And it's an 86 by the way.

    If you got flex you will rub with 10" rims, at least mine did.

    4" lift with 35x10. I am thinking 3.5 to 4 inch backspacing. it does rub when flexing and i have cut one of the tires slightly in a bind.....It needs to be trimmed but im scared.

    I had Eagle 589s on mine with 35 15.5 15 MT Baja HPs on them and I would rub a little on the rear of the front fender when flexing a lot. It wasn't enough for me to trim or worry about though.

    Can't get the other pics to resize so hopefully this one is good enough

    I've got 35s on 15x10 rims with a 4in lift and 2.5in body lift. I have never had a problem with rubbing at all. Even at full flex with my flexy 52s.

    If you have any flex at all it will rub. Nothing that cant be fixed with a hammer and saw though.
