    i have an 89 jimmy, with a 4" rough country lift. i currently am running 32x11.50r15 BFG all terrians. and they look like dount spares. i want to run a 35x12.50 and i dont do hard,y any off roading. think it will be okay while turning? i have a friend who has 2" add a leafs in the front and a 2.5" shackle flip in the rear, and is running 37x12.50 wranglers off from a hummer and it looks great, he has also trimmed about 3.5 inches front and rear of each wheel opening, and none on top, and he wheels all the time with it and never hits any part of the body. i just want it to look like the tires match the lift, not too big, and not the current donut spare look i am sporting right now
    thanks

    I did cut the front of my front fenders and I still need to due the rear of the front. The rear fender I trimmed the rear part and I am leaving the front part of the rear fender alone (no problem of it hitting here).

    Keep in mind, with larger tires you may need to change your gears. If you have a automadic transmission, larger tires and stock gears in the axles will usely resolt in a toasted tranny.
