35s and no lift

i just picked up a set of used 35s for my burb for $200, and i dont have a lift kit. theyre 15.5 wide. how much fender trimming will need to be done to run these with no lift, on a stock .5 ton 89 burb? thanks

Re: 35s and no lift

Trim til they fit... seriously though, it depends on how old (and saggy) your springs are, how wide your wheels are, etc..
You can expect to remove quite a bit of metal to keep them from rubbing. I say mount them up and start cutting.

Re: 35s and no lift

yeah thats what the plan was. ill probably do that tomorrow, and post up some pics. theyre on 16x10 steel. i think with the size of a burb and these 35's, itll give it a mean lookin stance. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/gituar.gif[/img]

Re: 35s and no lift

just got em mounted up and test drove em. wow. night and day difference.

they fit pretty well, but i didnt trim them yet. they dont rub as bad as i thought, but trimming will be in order, but the lug nuts were freezing to my fingers, so i decided to call it a day.

so a few days ago, i was going through the field and got stuck in 4" of snow. theres like 6 now, and the tires didnt even spin. they handle great, ride a little rough but its definitly worth it. even at low speeds, the flotation kept me going.

ill be sure to post pics when my dad gets home with the camera.
