35's will fit easy with a 2" body lift in addition to the spring lift. I run them with a 1" b/l and 2.5" s/l and they rub. Ended up going with big shackles as well. Might as well do an SOA and be done.
I found a guy selling a decent used set of 35 X 12.5 BFG MT's on 15 X 8 wheels.
I tried them on one side for fit, turned front wheels lock to lock & jumped up & down on the bumpers. I didn't road or trail test cause it's not that cool to ask a stranger to go drive their tires around and then beat them up on their price a bunch.
They fit better than you would think. I know the front mud flap bracket and flap would get torn off pretty quick, but I feel there would be no rubbing at all for street use or light trail use. But i had just enough doubt about how they would do on moderate to hard trail use to where i didn't get them. They just looked like they belonged on a vehicle with more lift. I was very close to getting them, but I just had that 20% doubt that they would be the right tires for me. The rims would have needed spacers too.
Hey Steve get em get em now!!!!!!!!.....we will make em fit...i'lll bring the 5lb sledge to Alpha Pit next ride.....October 1st ish....your truck will look awesome with it....if ya need help setting up some gears to match those tires let me know...but your stinky now so you could more than likly handle it with out a re-gear....
The rate I'm going, It'll be October by the time I make my mind up what tires to get! I'm putting way to much thought into this and just need to go out and get a set of tires.
I know I will show up next time with better tires than I got now.
i've seen a guy 'wheel' with 35's on a 60 w/ OME. He was a sissy on the trail, but they still rubbed some. Airing down would have helped some, but they still rubbed a little bit.
I've heard that a 1 or 2" body lift should make it all work out.
is it me or do we just get a cycle of the same questions over and over. Don't get me wrong i'm just as guilty but i think since i've been on mud i've seen this same question like every two weeks or so. Oh well
