    35\'s with a 3 inch lift

    will it rub like crazy? I have Dunlop mud rover 33's right now and need to get new tires. I want to go up in size. Also everyone talks about how cheap you can find these tires. Would someone please point me as to where that might be, I can't find them anywhere on line.

    If you don't trim the fenders, yes a 35" will rub.

    I have 3" TC springs w/ ORD shackles up front; tires are 315/75x16 MTR (34.5" tall as measured off the truck). With mild trimming (i.e. outer fender trimmed back to inner, inner left alone) and swaybar connected, the tires don't rub under articulation. With sway bar disconnected, tires contact the inner fender; more cutting is required.

    i have no lift and 33 12.50 15s, they dont rub at all.. depending on the backspacing of your wheels, the condition of your springs, bumpstops, etc you MAY or MAY NOT rub..

    Check this out: Burly Burb buildup

    I ran 315/75 procomps and had to be a little careful driving offroad, they hit pretty good with a 3" and the fenders trimmed. With the BFG's I added our 1" body lift and it will still hit but only occasionally. It's all in the trim
