    You will probably have to move your inner fender liners up front to make that happen unless you extend your bumpstops. I put 35x14.5s on a 2.5" lift and was able to get by without doing either of those, but under hard stuff I get some rubbing on the liner. In the rear you will probably to a-ok with a little trimming. I would stay with something liek 35x12.5s, if you go wider you will be hitting your steering components with stock backspaced wheels, and if you go with more backspacing you will have your tires in your fenders and you will have to trim A LOT to get rid of that.

    i will not be having problems with fenders, i think. the rust is so bad on the front fenders, i can cut them as far as i want. eventually, the front fenders will probably rot themselves off. its bad up front. as for the rear, the step side bed is completley removed. all i gotta do is add some mud flaps and brake lights.

    My blazer has 35s with no lift and doesn't rub anywhere you just have to be real aggresive Or as it sounds just do what I did cut the rust out made my truck look a whole lot better. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    On my old 84 3/4 I had 35x16x16.5 boggers on 12" rims, mother nature lift, and the tires hit the cab I think, think the inner fenders were completely rusted out in that area, and the cab mounts were gone, so when I turned hard the lugs hit the cab and you started bouncing around, quite the ride...didn't hit anything suspension or steering or anything, just the body.....I only paid $300 for it, and I beat the [censored] out of it. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
