    35\'s on 4\" lift

    Can it be done with minor fender trimming? I have a 79' K5 and 33's look small. How much rubbing will I get? Anyone have pic's of trimming with 35's on 4" of a similar year? I'm thinking about 35" Goodyear MT/R's. Need to know what to expect if I do run them.
    Thanks

    they will fit with a little trimming.there are however a few important variables.1)width and offset of your wheels,2)brand and springrate of your boingers,and 3)how hard and agressive you wheel.if you find you cant clear them ,or dont want to trim the fenders,you can do a 1"or2"body lift.

    Try a search. There have been a RASH of these questions lately. Search here and the garage, you'll probably get pics too.

    If you check out my WebShots page, you will see the trimming I did for my 35s on your new rims /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif to keep from rubbing the fenders under full flex. Depending on your springs and actual real-world lift height, you may or may not need this much trimming.
