I just got through searching and reading 10 pages of lift threads. So, with that being said, I'm looking to lift my 95 in the next couple weeks and I want to know (from people with 4 in lift and 35's) will I have any rubbing issues. I've had a bko with 6 in lift and 35's and it looked like it needed bigger tires ( I bought it that way). I like 35's, so I really don't want to go with a bigger tire.

Will super swamper 35x12.50x15 with 15x10 wheel have rubbing issue, Is the question. ha..

Btw For you search police, provide me with a link.:popc1:
Thanks Thomas

uhm i have a 4 inch with 36s and the fenders are stuff but there is no rubbing (i think thats because i have a good rim offset) although if i hit something more that likely my tire will touch the fender

On my 80 Bronco with 4" lift and 35" tires the tire would rub the inner fender well with the wheels tured a little uder flex. What I did to correct the problem is move the front axle 1.5" forward, problem solved. Keep in mind the 80's have larger wheel openings also. So I would say yes they will rub a little. From all the threads I have read most people with this set up that wheel there Broncos trim the fenders. Also IIRC you also have to trim the front bumper on your model. Good luck.

on a 15x10 inch rim i would think that it would rub the radius arms, and the edge of the bumper. all depends on backspace. i for one think they look like shit with a 4 inch lift and 35s. i think a 6 inch lift and 36s si tits

if you get extended RAs then you might not want to look into 35s unless you are willing to cut the fenders.

With drop brackets, you will be fine. I have a 4" and 36s on my 88 and though a few places were close, it did not rub. Though I trimmed just to be on the safe side. The bit of flex I was doing wasn't nearly to the full potential.

and unlike Ken, who is a flamer :goodfinge , I think a 4" kit with 35s/36s looks the best. I agree with a 6" kit they look too small. But you know the saying about opinions and assholes.




and these were my tolerances


front


rear

it would look better if the front matched the rear so put some 6 inch springs on it.

i had no bumper rub.
i think my set up looks pretty pimp.
What size wheels and backspacing?

That's what I'm talking about. :chili: It's my dd, plus you don't have to much to flex on here in Mississippi. I have a winch bumper, so the stocker will come off.

Btw Thanks for the coments.

IMO 6" looks better, but for a DD where you dont do hardcore wheelin, you should be fine. If any you might rub on the Radius arms at full cock.
