36's?

do you guys think i could fit 36" tires with no trimming?

and that will be with the rcd maxed and a body lift. on a 15x10 wheel

the tires i was lookin at are the interico tsl. what is the difference beetween the radial and the bias ply. i will be doing alot of street driving and off roadin in the weekends.

thanks

kevin could.

it would be VERY close on the inner part of the front fender at full lock, but he could clear 37's if he trimmed that...I dunno how much is there to trim or whatever, but he's got as much clearance (if not more) in the front. He has more than me in the rear too.

Since i have a flareside, with no flares...I measure a few months ago cause i was just curious to see what i could fit, MAX, with no rubbing during normal drive, i.e no flexing..

My ROUGH measurements came out to be somewhere near 2-3" taller than what i have now, and 2-3" wider..

In equivalent that would be somewhere around a 37x14.50

But, of course, the D35, IFS, and my wallet wouldnt allow it.

36's with front glass......by the looks of your pictures, you flex it often.....Scott D. (big04ranger) couldn't fit any bigger tires on the rear without doing something to the bed......he had a RCD and a 3" body lift.....it took glass fenders on the front to clear them without any rubbing when flexed......

and with the IFS front suspension, i wouldn't go any bigger than 35's.....your ball joints, wheel bearings and other things would be going out right and left....
