    Hey all,

    So I know people ask these types of questions a lot, some people get annoyed by it. If you get annoyed by this post please don't flame and move on. I promise i searched and searched and found stats and numbers and all kinds of math but I want real world experiences.

    I want to buy these tires:
    Nitto Trail Grappler - 35/12.5/17

    Right now i have a 3 inch leveling kit and if i get the right Offset on some rims I believe I can make it fit.

    My Questions:

    What Offset did you end up using? Perhaps full rim specs? Did you have to cut anything?

    Thanks in advance for the help guys!

    Lots of guys run 35s on a 3 inch lift. It will require Fender trimming, an agressive cab mount chop, folding the pinch weld, and regearing. 35s will rub when you wheel on a 3 inch lift no matter what you do so be prepaired for that.

    There's a thread about fitting 35's with a list of build threads. All the technical details are there. Lots of cutting/trimming if you want to wheel 35's without rubbing. CMC, pound pinch weld with BFH, trim/remove fenders, etc.

    Is this a thread that shows what the guy cut too? Curious to see a link as I don't recall any thread that detailed.

    Cheers
