    I just bought a '91 K5. Can you fit 35x12.5 " tires with a 4" suspension lift? I dont wanna have to trim my fenders. I tried a search, i couldnt seem to get a straight answer.
    thanks,
    joe

    yes, i just installed a 4 inch rough country lift, and borowed a friends 35's to see how well they would fit, and they clear fine, if you do a lot of rock crawling you may wantto trim, at full twist they touched the front fenders just enough to leave a mark on my mud flap, but not much more than that
    good luck

    It may depend on the lift brand, with my 4" pro comp and 35's with 8" rims they would only rub if the tire was turned and I hit a large bump or flexed. With 10" rims they hit the fenders every time I turned in the driveway. I trimmed just an inch back on the very bottom rearward edge of the fender and then bent it up so there was not a sharp edge. It is not noticable at all and now my tires only hit if the sway bar is disconnected.
