    I am going to be running a 6" lift, and I wanted to know how wide of a tire I can run without trimming the fenders. being from nj our redneck rigs tire's cannont stick outside of the well. So how wide can I go with tires using flares

    I would stick with a 12.5" width. That will fit well without needing trimming. And, combined with a wheel with 4" backspacing...should keep it tucked under the front pretty well (that's what I have) - back is no worry because of the narrower axle. Any wider of a tire/less backspacing - and the front tires might start attracting the cops. Mind you this is with stock fenders - no flares.

    If you want to go wider tires, can't you use fender flairs like Bushwackers.

    he can but that is just more money to spend. i'd say go with bfg mud km's. good tires and not that expensive. they come in a 35x12.50. it would be good to use. later.
