    i know there is a thread about lift kit fitment but my question is a little different. i am putting a 4 inch rough country lift with springs all around and an extra 2 inch of block in the rear. anyone know what the largest tire i can go with is while doing minimal fender trimming on the corners. i wont be using this rig off road much ( i have another truck for that) and have no hills to worry about a lot of flex. mainly i'm going for looks.
    thanks!

    The front is the only place you should really have fitment issues because those tires can turn. You could probably fit 35's with somewhat minimal trimming.

    If it were mine and I wanted looks I would get some zero rates for the front (and mabey a 3" block in the back if you have the stance where you want it) move the front axle forward an inch and try to fit 38x15.5 swamper radials on it. I garuntee it will rub when flexing but it will look cool as hell. If you don't want to do all that work I would just get some 37s and trim a bit

    Im running 37's on a 5" lift. They fit, but rubbed a little. You could get away with minimal fender trimming (front only) and use this on the street. When I went wheeling however, I had to do some pressty serious trimming.
