Have a 3" body lift with 33" tires on stock rims and I'm looking to go bigger. I only want to get 35s but if I can go bigger.... wink Any suggestions would be great, I'm a bit bored waiting on my FSU :P

Skinny 35's will work if you are good with a sawzall

I'm planning on some 10" rims with a 5" backspace, by my estimate on room I can get a 12" wide tire, seeing as I have 11.5s on it now and only a little rub on the front at full steering lock. I'm more worried how much I'll have to trim on the rear quarter to keep it from rubbing when she squats.

You will be running into the IFS vs live axle tire clearance conundrum.

For the IFS, you can fit wider tires if you keep 5.5" of BS

Here are 33 x 13.5/16 LTBs for example:




That's with just a 2" BL (There's a 3" SL too, but that only helps at ride height, no help on stuffage, etc...)

In the rear, the 13.5's do rub the frame rails on opposite side droop/stuff scenarios...so less BS WOULD help there...but I have 15" of VERTICAL axle travel so my opp stuffage angles are pretty severe.

Your main boggy on 35's are the rears of the front wells, you typically need to BFH back sheet metal towards the leading lower corners of the front doors....to have decent clearance there.
