2wd w/ 3" spindle lift = Max tire size?

What max tire size can I clear without rubbing for my 2002 2wd edge with a 3" spindle lift?

yep, with cranked tbars & spindles up front and 3" blocks sitting on the factory 2" blocks in the rear, you can fit 35's. You'll probably have to trim your bumper a lil with anything over 32s though..

Zach that is because your a wuss! Go with 35's the 33's look too small when you have the lift on. I had 33's and couldnt wait to get 35's after my lift!
