    fitting 35x15.5 swampers on 2\" lift

    I got a rust free 89 Blazer with a 2" body lift and I am going to put about a 6" suspension lift on when money allows.

    I really hate to trim the fenders a whole lot, but how much would I have to trim them to fit to fit 35x15.5 tires till I get the suspension lift?

    Thanks,

    Trey

    Why go 35's when u can go 38s with the 6" lift and the 2" body just wait and buy 38's

    I second that remark...35's will look tiny with 8" of lift - especially if they're really wide (15.5 like you said). Go with a skinnier 38...it will allow it to turn into the fenders better (less hacking).

    [38's + stock '89 gears]time = transmission

    I am going to 1 ton axles very soon with 4:56s, that is part of the reason that I want a bigger tires to keep my RPMs down.

    I am gonna put the suspension lift on it and right now I am planning on running 39.5's. But I dont have the money for the lift and the 39.5's now, so I was just wanting to put a slightly bigger tire on for now. Then when I do the lift I will upgrade to 39.5's too.

    Sorry about the confusion

    Thanks,

    Trey

    yeah the width is going to kill you, you could probably fit them on, but steering wouldnt happen..
    i had to do a little trimming with my 35*15s in the parking lot before i could drive away with a 4 inch suspension lift when i got them mounted...
    so i basically second the A LOT statement
    good luck
