4in lift Q
 
I want to order a set of tires soon as I currently I have 31s on and when I put on my 4in lift I would like to slap on the new tires.

Does anyone know the largest tire a 4in can handle? I know 33s seem to be the standard but I would like to know peoples opinions on running 35s or if even larger will fit.

Thanks

Yes 35s will fit fine. If you buy wheels get some that will push the tire out of the wheel well.
As soon as I put the 6" lift and 35s on I wished I would have just bought 37s! Lol I'm sure it will be the same deal with you if you go 33s!

I know very little about wheels, what size or measurements should I look for to push them out?

I would recommend a 17" wheel that's 9" wide with negative offset. But any wheel with a negative offset will do the trick.
Here's some 17s and 35s a friend just bought.

I have 15x7.5 wheels (stock I think) that I really like and I wanted to wrap those 35" general grabbers on them...can I do that or should I look for a wider wheel?

Ya you can but they will probably rub your radius arms at full lock but then again a 33/12.5/15 will probably rub with that wheel as well...so ya go for it!
The only reason I never recommend 15" tires or wheels anymore is because every tire shop around here doesn't stock 15" truck tires anymore and the manufactures are quitting making the 15 stuff.
I read that in a couple years 15" tires will be like the 16.5...."gone like the dinosaurs"! Lol

I think it depends on the lift too. A Rough Country 4 inch may not fit the 35s. But a procomp will. If your going with rough country u might as well go with the 6 inch its only like 60 bucks more

I already have the lift; its springs, radius drops, axle pivot drops, pitman for a 4in lift in the front and I'm putting on f250 rear leafs for 3inches in the rear.

And I have a 2inch body lift if I need some more lift lol
Thanks for the input
