lift height

I know this question has probably been asked a million times but I always get different answers I want to run 35" tires at least 12.5 wide maybe upto 14" wide do I have to go to a 6" lift or can I get away with a 4" and maybe trim a bit either way I will get extended radius arms that are bent a bit for tire clearence. 1986 fullsize bronco

Re: lift height

35 x 12.5 is pretty standard. On an 8 or 10" rim you can probably get away with the 4", I did. If you go wider on the tire wheel combo, I don't see that working with a 4" lift without lots of rub.

Re: lift height

I have 35x14.50 on a 6" and they rub on the radius arms which are extended. Other radius arms besides Superlift might be the best bet. My tires also rub on the trailing front fenders when the wheels are turning and flexing. Does anybody else have these problems with a 6" and 35x14.50s?

Re: lift height



The picture isn't that great, but when turning like so and that wheel compresses it rubs against my trailing fender. I guess the only solution is to whip out the hack saw. Nobody else has this predicament.

Re: lift height

I do off road, not on road. I can see where they've hit my fenders there a little under full compression... but that's only happened once or twice, but it shows on the inside. 6" is mandatory for 35's IMO, but if you got jiggy with the sawzall you could do it with 4". BTW, i have 35x12.5 BFG muds on 10" wide rims.


Your Toy is loaded huh? Does it have Power Engine?
