you wont be able to fit 34's....give that up on just a body lift alone.....

to me 33's are too much tire for a body lift alone....but hey it is your truck...



BTW: do a search, this kind of topic comes up every other day...or just browse the tire/wheel section...

33x12.50's on 15x8's fit with no rubbing on a 98+ 4x4 with 3" body lift. As long as you don't have some funky offset wheels. Cranking the torsion bars will make it ride like ****, and won't allow the front suspension to do it's job. It also won't allow bigger tires, the suspension will still compress to the bumpstop.

An old Xed member from here had 35 with just a 3in BL and cranked t-bars(I believe),no flex room and rub the fenders like crazy offroad.

You can fit 35s but for offroading benefit go with 33s

sure i think those tires would fit on stocker rims. mine are wider and they fit on stockers.removing your valance will help with flex issues. If you like cutting then you could cut part of you OEM fender off to allow for allot of flex.

the valance is the plastic part of the bumper. ur fog lights are mounted in it. i think 12.50 might look kind of goofy on stockers. the stock rims i think are 8 inches.

I have a BL and maxed t-bars with 35s and wheel whenever I get a chance and have never rubbed offroad. The IFS hates to flex especially with the t-bars maxed out so I never worried about rubbing. The only trimming I did was to the inside of my fender flares and you can't even see where i cut. As far as the rear, the tires tuck up perfectly when I am flexed out without any trimming.
