    just keep trimming until they don't hit anymore. get yourself something to ramp outside your garage or take a battery powered sawzall with you to your favorite trail and keep trimming until they don't hit anymore.

    turn your wheels all the way in one direction pulling that tire on to a ramp or pile or something, cram it as far as you can get it up in there,then get a scroll or chalk outline where your tire hits, then cut 1 inch farther then that, thats how i done a 77 with 33's and no lift /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    i have pics of how much I trimmed in webshots. I was trimming for 39.5s... but the pics have 35" tires, and I think it looks better than stock.... that could just be my opinion. At any rate, why not just trim a lot... then you dont have to worry about it. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
