toss them on we already started adding to it, then add it to the stickes that way when a noobie asks what fits on a stock bronco they can see it or ask will 35s fit stock here it is

we know 33s fit stock across the years, but it is nice to know the mods needed to run bigger tires

you got it.. '82 bronco, bone stock, stock non offset rims.
bald 35" tires and fenders cut at the concave crease.






here's a later pic taken after the 4" lift was installed... along with new 35's on 10 inch rims (with a tiny bit of offset, the least i could get in 10" wide)
i actually really like this look.. if i were building another bronco this is what i would go for. performed great and had the perfect look IMO.

I have an 84 bronco. 31x10.50's rub on radius arm on turns. Before, with stock tire, I was able to do a complete circle on a 2 lane road, and not go off the pavement. The stock bronc had an excellent turn radius with the short wheel base, but now some of that turn radius is affected, I can live with that for now, I will most likely get steel spacers 1.5 to 1". My $.02.

watch the speed bumps then, part of me trimming mine was the fender got into mine a little, not bad, but if they where new it would have done some pretty decent damage,

my problem wasent full lock, was about 1/4-1/2 way turned in the front

That's too nice to cut up, plenty of rusted out fenders running around for cutting.

for those of you who had to deal with 35's rubbing... was it the width of the tire or the height of the tire that was causing the rub?

Bronco Info: 1986 ford bronco xlt with 351W. 3 inch body lift and 35x12.5x15 Mickey Thompson Baja mtz radials.
Width mine has 35x12.5 and rub when I go to do sharp turn I used to be able to turn on a dime now I have to hug the curb to make a u turn on a two lane road and I end up hitting the curb on the other side. I miss the turning radius. I think i might go with a smaller width on next set of tires.

width and height and rim offset all cause rubbing.....

35s vs 33 you loose 1" in clearance because of tire height(tire is 1" bigger all the way around vs 33, so they give 1" lift), rims mine are 15x10( i believe may be wrong,), not sure on offset but they stick out more atleast 3" over the stock 15x7 rims i had

and my tires are 10.50 wide, pretty standard for 35s

btw my stock tires where 235/75r15 or 28.9 so i gained 3" of lift just in tires

Mine are 35x12.5. On a 15x10 rim. Only rubs radius arms for now, did a lil rubber mallet action on the corners to be safe, only on the inside of course.

I think most all 35's are 12.50's

I think to get 10.50's you got to go BFG or Interco... maybe some others



but don't listen to me, I'm running 33's on mine with about 6" of SAS lift, I've never bought a set of 35's in my life....

Maybe someday when I'm not in college and am making money again lol
