Edge + 3" Spindles = 35s?

Saw a thread on RPS without much going on in it, but it got me curious. Will 35's clear a edge with 3" spindles and a lift in the rear? Figuring 33s sqeeze stock, I'd imagine with the right backspacing would due.

I'll be getting spindles within the money, i'll upgrade the tires not too long after and want to stuff it the best I can. I'll buy new rims to go, 15x10 by X" bs??

Any pics too?! Thanks-

I cant remember his name but I know there's at least one member that has only the fabtech spindle kit on his edge and runs 35s, no body lift. I'm not sure how much he rubs, if any, but yes it can be done. I believe 3.75 BS is what is suggested for the wheels.

per your own words what you do to plan on upgrading the Braking... you made a big stink about it before with 35's....

what about the fronts? All of your weight is over your front, disks in the rear are not going to help as much as you think.

You need to tackle the front if you are worried about brakes.

It is all about fenders, DCVRP is stepside=no fender flares. His fit pretty tight up in the wheel wells, I lifted his truck with him. My truck...I could fit 37s right now (and I just may get them for next tires), BUT I could not fit 35's with just the spindle lift...I only have about 2" between the tire/fender. It has to do with the fact that the tire is not even inside the fender anymore, and with just a 3" lift it IS still in the fender

my truck 35's 3" body/3" susp



his truck, 3" spindle...you can see if he had fender flares it would not fit at all

the 35s on the +3" truck look good, but i'd tear something up wheeling with the tires that close. Thanks though!
