    here is a pic of my old 88 with 4in and 35x12.5R15s. I didn't trim anything with 4in lift but I did crush in th back of the front fenders a little. nothing that was too noticable. You should be fine for some light offroading.

    Depending on how much you flex it out, 35s will fit fine without trimming, or just a bfh on the back of the front fender

    what gears are you running with your current 33s? if its anything higher (numerically lower) than a 3.73, you should really consider regearing. your trans WILL NOT like you with short gearing.

    pull a cover, and count the teeth on the gears. divide the number of teeth on the ring gear by the teeth on the pinion gear.

    Honestly, this has been covered 1 million times before. Same exact question. Use the "search" feature, it is your friend. To answer your question, 35's should fit with 4" of lift no problem. If you go wheeling somewhat, it will probably hit when flexing. I run 37's on about 6" of lift, and it fit without cutting. Thing is, it would rub pulling into my driveway. I had to cut a lot to run them with no swaybar, and some pretty hard rock wheeling. If you need to cut them after you go wheeling, youll know how much. Just flex it out till it rubs, then get out and mark what needs to be cut. Very simple. Mine rubbed so bad with no swaybar all the way flexed out, that i though i was either gonna bust a new mtr, or the motor stall. :eek1: :eek1:

    you can also just mark the tire. then mark the driveshaft at the diff yoke. count how many times the driveshaft goes around in order to make the tire do one full revolution.

    i cant even tell the difference in a 33" and 35" by looking. they are both small tires once you've seen something over 40" wheel. and BTW, ive seen 35's on a 78 with no lift.

    35s and no lift= fender trimming

    my 77 is stock factory original chassis and it has 33 x 12.50 onit and i had to trim the fenders because they will rub just on the street when you turn too fast

    so,,,

    but then width affects this too


    id like to find some better 33" tires

    mine are just about garbage, old and dried up and real bad curb rash on a rear one and the other day i rashed a front one on a damn curb along the main drag, so.,.

    damn curbs!


    too bad i wasnt in MA to buy them off ya,

    i would..


    good luck
