    Hey guys, I'm getting ready to start putting a little more air under my 82 k5 blazer. I'm figuring on a 3" body 4" suspension lift. As far as tires go I think 35 mabye 37 inch mickey thompson baja claws on the stock 15" rims. My question is what are the problems with going to a wider tire? Say like a 35 by 14.5 by 15. Will the tire rub because it's wider? Or should the lift take care of this. I'm not talking on the fender, I know the lift should clear that, but rather on the inside. Any of you comments are greatly appreciated.
    edit: right now it is sitting on 33/12.5-15 inch tires.

    14.5 won't seat good on a stock rim it is not wide enough, plus you may want a little more backspace then the stock rim.
