If you dont flex at all ever.

I have a 4" SL with 3" BL and I still had to trim my fenders front and rear so that my tires dont rub when flexed. and the 4" is more like 5" now with the coilovers.

He mentioned that wasn't going to be doing much off-road stuff, so I figured that would be enough.

But you're right

I was still rubbing a few months ago (before the coilover swap) with 35s, SL, BL, and a little trim just going in and out of my driveway lol.
