    Will 35x12.50x15 tires fit with 3\'\' body lift,4\'\'suspen. lift w/o trimming?

    Ok guys it's time to spend some dough for some meats. I was wondering with a 3" body lift 4"suspen. lift will 35x12.50x15 tires fit on Bamm Bamm without trimming my new fenders i just bolted on or do I have to settle for 33x11.50x15 tires instead? Thanks alot.

    I think it depends on how extreme you plan to get off road. I've had 33's on a stock chevy pick up with no problem but I wasn't doing alot of off roading either. The tire dealer should be able to tell you yes or no for sure. If he doesnt have the answer I'd look elsewhere for tires

    The 35's almost look small with the 7" of lift. I have the same thing on my '77 and I think that I could fit 38's with very little trimming. The tyres are 35x14.5x15 inch Ground Hawgs on 15x10 8 lug rims. I'll try to get a picture of it posted but I don't think that it'll happen for a while.

    NEVER been stuck... *yet*

    FIT..EASY I'VE GOT AN 84 W/ONLY 4" OF LIFT AND RUN 35-12.50 MUDS AND NEVER HAVE HAD A PROBLEM EXCEPT FOR MY CHROME WHEEL TRIM AND IT GOT IKSCHNAYED SHORTLY AFTER. BUT TRUCKFAN
    IS RIGHT IT MIGHT LOOK A LITTLE FUNNY. MAYBE 36'S OR ONLY 1-2 IN BODY LIFT. GOOD LUCK

    Now see my 72 had 35s on the stock 8x15 wheel and they fit fine, even in extream off road. But the same will not fit 73 and up! without lift. after changeing to 10x15 wheels though I needed to do a bit of work on the front fender now just a hammer hit or so, it's just a bit of a rub bairly.

    Chrome Moly,
    It definately would fit. I run that exact set up, 4"susp, 3"body, and 35x12.20 tires. No trim. I have to agree with Truckfan2. The 35's look a bit small with that lift.

    Make sure the offset on your rims is the right one.Mine stick out too far and needed a body lift.Mine are 15.5" wide though too which probably has a lot to do with it too.

    Shouldn't have a problem. I have a 6" lift with 35's and it looks fine. A lot of my friends are running the exact same lift as you are, with the 4" suspension and 3" body and it looks fine. It's all just a matter of opinion and taste. Some like the looks of it and some don't. Personally I think it would look fine. I'd say go for it man! :)

    I have only rubbed my fenders when under some major twist. Check out the looks here if you like. Mine are 35x15.5-15 Swampers. Wider than yours, but same idea.'
