    I would say it will be fine if your just mudding and streeting but if you plan to off road hard(even hard mudding or hard street driving) they will rub. I would say 14.50s will be more likely than 12.50s to rub( I am sure you understood that). To really clear 35s you need 6" or 4" and trimming. 35x14.50s 4" and fender flare cut outs might be a good route.

    depends... plan on running a anti-sway bar? back when I had just 4" of spring lift, my 35s would rub... but only when i had the anti-sway disconnected and I was *really* working the suspension at pretty much full compression on one side or the other.

    ill go ahead and tell you no on the 35x14.5's. I got the 4" and am gonna do a 2" body lift, to clear my 35x14.5 SSR's. Its just cause i dont wanna trim my fenders lol. They would probably rub pullin in my driveway, course with the way the city screwed up our road my 33's are probably close.....
