4\" lift......how big of tires

I have a 2003 silverado 1500 with a 4" rancho suspension lift, i was wondering if 35" tires would fit.

If you're willing to trim a little bit (on the 90's truck this consisted of clipping the corner of the bumper, modifying or removing the air dam, and other minor things) then 35's should fit fine. Just make sure you have the gearing for them. Good luck!

Re: 4\" lift......how big of tires

id say 35-36 tires,

all depends on your style. the stock ifs front have close to no wheel travel. so you can get away with larger tire after you trim.

Im running 35x12.5s on 8" wide wheels with 3.5" backspaceing and just a 3" body lift.

torsion bars arent cranked abit.

I trimmed about 6"s from the corner of the bumper and modefied my fender wells to clear.

I've seen 35"s run with NOTHING but maxed torsion bars (terrible, terrible idea), but as long as you get along well with the sawzall, you should be good up front.
