    F@uk so this morning i wake up and find all 4 bfg tires on my truck slashed my question is im going to a 14ff and a 3/4 10b front with 4.10 gears soon i already hve the axles but need it to dry up a bit before i attempt to install a 4" lift with my ideal 35" bfg mud's. So i had the 31"'s on and was wondering if i should just get the 35" or 33" for now and save money on buying wht i relly want now. If i put the 35" tires on will i be okay without a lift for now only city driving no flexin and my front fenders were cut before for 4" and 35"s so will this be okay any pics of it? thanks guys this is the only thing thats keeping me from killing the person who did it as i know them and so do the police. thanks a ton guys:(

    If your fenders are already cut, then you should be able to skweeze 35s under without the lift. 33s will fit, no problem.

    And I'd definitely be opening a can of whoopass on whatever jackass slashed those tires.

    buy whatever you want and send that idiot the bill. man, i hate people who screw with someone else's vehicle.

    but yes, 35" with trimmed fenders at stock height should easily work on a street-only basis. i wouldn't recommend attempting tight turns, though.

    Hey man! Is this on your newer truck, or your K5?

    if you want some cheap MTs for now, I can get you a set of 35/11.5/15 Uniroyal MT Radials for 300 bucks. Got a fair bit of tread on em, around 75% (13mm), but have some dry rot cracking on them. They are in Blackfalds, but I have a buddy who could bring them up not this next weekend, but the weekend after, or even I could bring them up if I head south this week, pending a deal works out.

    In the meantime, if it is your K5 that got vandalized I've got a set of stock K5 6 bolt wheels / tires (I think they are smaller than 31" though) you can roll on until you get new tires. Just shoot me a PM if you need them.

    Russ

    Ah, thought you had a newer white chevy you met me with while I was at the apartment building a year or so ago, guess things change eh? :D

    Well, lemme know if you need the rollers if the 35s won't fit. I imagine they will with trimming, I've seen it before. They definitely fill the wheel wells up, lol

    I had 35X12.5s on my truck with no lift for a little while. I had to trim the front fenders a little and trimmed some of the inner wheelwell. The tires still rubbed at full steer and when I would flex it. I took it off-road this way and it actually worked real well.

    So how do you know this same jackass isn't going to come slash your new tires, since he got away with it last time without so much as a slap on the wrist?

Anyways i better get takin those pics before its to late.
