Okay I am going to lift my truck 4in and I want to know if I can fix 35x12.5 with that much lift and what kind of wheels I would need: like back spacing, offset, width.

Any help is appreciated.

I have a 4" suspension lift, 2" body lift, 35x12.5x15 BFG and I still rub on a turn. I also have 10"wide rims. I have heard of people running a 4" lift with 10"wide tires and the min width rim with the required backspacing (4.25") and they rub just not as much. I was leary about the body lift, but the performance accessories lift is a well put together complete kit.

A 10" wide wheel is only needed if your running a 12.5" tire. What will fit with out any rubbing with just a 4" lift is a set of 32x10.5 tires mounted on the minimum width rim required for the tire (see the tire manufacturer for that size) anything bigger than that in width or height will rub on a full turn. I have rubbing with my set up 35"tires 4"suspension, 2" body but it dose not affect my turning at all I just hear a little noise on a full turn.

I have 32x11.5 tires on the stock rims on a totally stock truck... they rub the mudflaps in the front very slightly, no big deal.

As far as I know, nothing has been modified or tweaked on the truck.

the tires are BFGoodrich All Terrain KO's. 32x11.50

I have no idea if you'd scrub with an 8inch wheel... im new to all this stuff.

Well...there's a few ways.

You could heat it up and try to git to break free...but I never did like that approach.

You could git a nut cracker/buster...no...not someone kicking you in the nuts. :(

They have special tools that grab the stripped nut and work it off...but you should spray it down with some decent stuff first. PB Blaster or Kroil...
