    Just ordered the black rhino sidewinder in 18s along with 295/70 nitto trail grapplers. I have a 3 inch lift (2 in the back 3 in the front leveling kit) how much trimming should I do? Any cab chopping necessary? If so I'm screwed because that's a little out my league. Thanks guys...

    And yes I've Searched searched and researched and can't find a definite answer....

    Those are 34.5" tires. You are going to have to do a ton of trimming, definitely chop your cab mounts, and may even need to trim your fenders. Do you have an aftermarket front bumper? That will make things slightly easier.

    People have to trim the wheel well and chop the cab mounts even with 285/65/18.

    Also the backspacing of the wheels will have a lot to do with it

    The problem is the height not the width. You need to be looking 1.5"+ less than that as far as diameter goes, unless you want to cut your fenders or get a new aftermarket bumper, or both. Youll still have to trim with 33s even
