    35\'s and no lift

    I just put some 35"x 12.5's on my truck with no lift and it looks sweet. I still need to do some body trimming but it looks like it will work just fine. I wish I had some pics I could post

    Re: 35\'s and no lift

    Okay I may be female, but I think something is wrong here---

    Here's my reasoning- HOW can 1 guy have 35's on with NO trimming- and it doesnt rub- BUT another guy has 35's with 4 lift, and he had to trim??? Am I missing something here?
    I had 33's on my suburban, stock and it didn't rub, but I also wasn't doing ANY flexing with that thing, it was a daily driver on road etc... if I had gone to 35's there would be NO way it would have worked without some chopping of something- I just don't see how this can be true-- Where's the pics?

    just my .02 and its not even worth that!

    Re: 35\'s and no lift

    Alot depends on the tires. Some 35's are not actually 35" and more like 34's. I could have fit 35's on mine with no lift but without hacking I would not be able to turn or flex at all. Pete has 39.5's on 3" of lift so anything is possible.

    Re: 35\'s and no lift

    Ok I know what you are saying but like I said before the truck is not insured right now so it hasn't even moved an inch since the tires are on and secondly I also said that I was going to put a 4" lift on before it moves and yes I do expect to cut a lot of fender away. I was just trying to say the first time that it looks bad ass right now with the big tires and no lift but obviously I am going to have to trim allot and do the lift.
