4 inch lift and stock tires will this look like crud or will it look decint
I assume you do this because you can't afford your 35's yet? If so, then yes... do it by all means, but if not... I wouldn't unless you plan on upping the tire size
i think it would look alright. for what its worth i just put 8" BDS on my k5 with 35 BFGs (actually measure 34") and while the tires look way to small, it doesnt look horrible. i plan to get bigger tires eventually. i say do it. it doesnt matter if ppl think it looks wierd, they will be drooling when the new tires are finally on!
theres a pic of it
thank for the pick i think i will save my money and get 33 tsl super swampers
Might as well buy 35s now dude. Less than 90 days is the average time it takes for a K5er to kick himself in the ass for not getting bigger tires... Myself included.
this is going to be my daly driver and i dont want to hack up the fenders
Had a new s-10 that went almost nowhere but work and home for almost 2 years. Had dings and dents along with color of whatever opened there doors into it at work. When went to a store this sat in left field. Got rid of it to drive the k-10. Who cares if i'm in the lines now. others try and get to the side by the curb of an end lot. The people at work brought this on themselves.
get the bigger tires almost forgot. you get more respect.
If you're not going to be wheelin the piss out of it, you should be able to fit 35's without hacking anything. MrK5 here has 37's with 2.5 inches of lift, and his trimming was minimal, and only because he wheels like a mad man. And because he lets Burblover spot for him when I'm not around.
all right all right 35s it is and yes i will be wheeling the piss out of it
I must be a fast learner - it took me about 10 mins. Get the tires.
Then why get Swampers? 35" BFGs will last longer, wear more evenly, handle better, and still fit w/ just a little hammering for street use. A 35" ProComp is even cheaper and almost as tall as a 35" BFG. Both new mounted on a 15x8: BFG M/T~ 34 3/4, P/C A/T~ 34 3/8.
