That Wannabe's truck. Notice that hee has no valance on there, and how close the tires are coming to the fenders.

You want some amount of room in the wheel well for flex. To me, tires "fit" if you can wheel the truck and not start tearing stuff off. If a certain size tire works on pavement only, with little to no suspension flex, that's not my idea of "fitting".

Yeah if you have fender flares and run 35's with just a body lift and cranked bars you'll have problems off road. Shane, (truck pictured above) took off his flares because the tire would rip them right off when taken off road lol. Valence also removed because you would have to trim it if left on.

Do you already have the body lift on? I'm running 33x11.50's on stock 16x7's and they wear perfect. I just have my t-bars cranked a little and I have no rubbing what so ever. I did no trimming but I did take off my mud flaps.
