How much Trimming will i need to do if i put 35's on with a 3 inch lift
what rig are you putting it on?
Depends on how wide they are and your rim selection. I run Q78's with only a 2" body lift and no trimming, but i also run 5.5" wide rims with a lot of backspacing.
If it's going on a K5, and you are talking about a body lift, you'll need to take off a bit at the rear of the wheel well at the least. As they said, it depends on the wheel width and backspacing. I have 15x10 wheels with 4" backspacing, and my 33's rub occasionally when the wheel is cranked to one side all of the way and I enter a parking lot. I have a 3" body-lift on a '91 K5.
Probably not as much as I did with 2.5" lift and 37" tires. See links below.
Thanks for the information ...Yes its a 1986 K5 Blazer sorry i didnt tell yall that this is the first post ive ever done im new to this thing and yes it is a body lift until i save up enough money to get a supension lift i dont know what size yet but thanks again
If you plan on taking off the swaybar and really wheeling and flexing your K5 you need to trim a lot more than just the bottom corners. I trimmed about 3 or 4 inches back behind the front tire and in the front I trimmed it up about 3 inches also. I run 4 inches of lift and 35's.
