    Uh-oh...36\" under 4\"???

    Here's the situation, I had a deal fall through on some 35x12.5x15's today. Well I got ansy and stumbled on a deal to good to refuse. I come across some 36x12.5x16.5's used goodyears off of a Hummer with about 75% tread, then went and found an even better deal on some 16.5 rims to fit. Got the entire setup for $350. My dilemma is I'm ready to cut my fenders no prob, but I'm wondering if they r going to rub I've gotta a 4" lift on my 84' and I'm just not totally convinced it's going to work without a little rub. I don't want to lift anymore (suspension or body). I have a 6" lift under my 79' and even still has a little rub, but I'm running a 36x14.5x15 a slightly wider tire. Any feed back will help. I'm going to cut the fenders this evening. Before I do I will check this forum again.

    I run 36 12.5's Swampers with a 4" lift and you will have to trim the front fenders, in fact under compression you will still rub the inner fender just a tad, I plan on cutting part of the inner fender soon.

    Nice cut I like that alot better then what I planned on doing, I've got a plasma cutter so it shouldn't take more than a milla sec to get em cut (well maybe a little longer), but I do like the cut and I will post before and after pics 2morrow or the next day. Hey I might even recut my other Blazer the same.
