    I'm gonna buy tires ahead of time and I dont want any rubbing at all with: 35X12.50 on 15x10's with 5.5"(more like 6") BDS lift. Thanks.

    You should be fine except if you really get the tire up in the wheel well during flex(without cutting). Other than that, street driving you will be fine.
    i run a 6" Superlift Superride lift and 35x15.50's and only get rubbing on compression.

    Thanks Emmett for the reply, may I ask what gears you have? I'm torn between 4.56 and 4.88. I have 3.73 now and its a bit of a dog in the mountains especially when towing (even though my boat now only weighs 600lbs. Thanks. Oh, I have gm 10 bolts.

    I have 4.10's and a TH350. I will be going to a 700r4 some day down the road. My brother is running a 700 with 4.56s and he realy likes it(runnin the same tires as me 35x15.50) I think you will have plenty of power for towing. He runs it in third and never goes into fourth(hasn't got the controller for the lock up yet) and he is running some high rpms when on an open road.(like 2800 or so)
