    gettin my 35\'s.. have some questions..

    I've got and 86 with a 350 in it.. stock just about everything, i think it's like 3.05 gears but don't quote me on that.. i have no lift on it and am getting some 15x9 rims to fit some 35x12.5x15's.. i don't plan on flexing at all, mostly a daily driver.. i plan on cutting my fenders some and getting fender flares, i want some wheel spacers too, so my tires stick out about one inch on each side,, my question is if i cut my fenders then put the fender flares on will you be able to tell that i cut the fenders? also how much will those fenders need to be cut if it just a daily driver? i think Greg72 has a k5 with 35's and stock suspension? Greg if ya out there lemme know, and what should i do about the gears? i'm not rock crawling or anything so could i run stock gears too? .. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif you are going to cut a tire, or peel a fender right off. i have a 4 inch full suspension lift, and i could tear up a tire or two before i trimmed a little, and after that i still rub. i would say that you can trim quite a bit and hide it with flares. you will have to cut about 1-1.5" on each side of the wheel well. just dont try and pull up on a curb /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    Re: gettin my 35\'s.. have some questions..

    I am sorry. I have a 4 inch lift and 35s and rub when i flex while turning. I could use to take an inch off too. I dont think flares would cover up as much as you need to take off. Also you will have to buy longer wheel studs to have some back spacing. I had like a quarter inch spacer on the rear so the rims would clear my brake drums, and it wasnt a week before my wheel fell off.
