35x12.5-15 ?

I picked up a set of tires from my buddy, just wondering if they would fit. I have a 2000 ranger 4x4. I planed on cranking the torsion bars and blocks this weekend. 35x12 -15 thanks

No. Mine stock had the ride height of a 4x4 and I could only fit 33's with rubbing.

uhhhh......no. You'll need AT LEAST a bodylift, even at that, they would be stuffed and rub like crazy. You should have either a RCD or Superlift suspension lifts, and a body lift to fuilly clear 35's. We have a sticky thread regarding lift options, and max tire size for each particular setup.

Depending if he has stepside or regular side bed. I know I just have a 3" lift and I can clear 35's with NO PROBLEM. With a bodylift I know I can clear 37's better than the 35's and suspension lift.

I have a 3" Bl and a 3-4"SL ( 3in the back 4 in the front or vise-versa) and that will clear my 35's fine.. But stock.. NO.. my truck has 31's on it right now.. Ive got a pic of my 35's sitting side by side with the front drivers side 31 and the 35 is higher than the fender

Just to give you an example I test fitted some 33x12.5's that I got on my truck. The suspension is stock besides a 1.25in tbar crank. I could run them, but I would get pretty bad rubbing when turning.

Hey Sonic, could you get a front view and a slight angled view of those 12.5's you got on there? Curious to see how close they really can get on it.. I will be ordering some 33/11.5's this summer when I get my superlift on, and tempted to see if perhaps a 12.5 would fit.. I lov ehow mweaty they look when they stick out about an inch out the side.. Im just afraid the inside rubbing is going to be the issue.

Thanks for all the help. I went friday and had the tires mounted they fit other than they rubbed. The front fender flares were hitting and the inner fender was hitting. So I cranked the torsion bars and added two inch blocks. That solved the clearence problems. It worked pretty good on Saturday, hit some mud and trails no problems.
