Default I need a 35" tire from Connecticut

I just installed a 5" TM lift and 3" body lift. I want to buy tires for my blazer but I want to make sure they fit before I spend $1000+ on tires. If anyone has 35 x 12.5 tires with 5 lug chevy rim that I would be able to borrow for a few minutes that'll be great.

I'm going to do a write up when I'm all done with the truck. I still have to modify the crossover pipe, put the front driveshaft in, buy shocks, install the sway bar, and cut the fenders a bit cause the 34s rub if i cut the wheel too much. And when I'm done hopefully a shop can align it.

Don't get too excited wlorton. I've been wanting pics of this for a LONG time from Tony, lol. kiddin, but I do imagine that white blazer looks great with that lift.

Hope you find someone with tires you can borrow. I can almost promise your gonna have to trim with 35's. How much depends on how close the tire is to a true 35. Like the Dunlop mud rovers, the 35x12.50's are only like 34.2 inches tall.

Haha, I'll have to start with that write up soon lol

Well right now I have 34 x 9.5 SuperSwamper TSLs on Cragar rims with a backspace of 4.75" on my truck. I did have to cut the fenders a bit cause they did hit when I turned the wheel. 35 x 12.5 will most likely fit with no problems.

that looks GOOOD. the bad thing about all of this is that its going to be very difficult for you to find someone with our same lug pattern and 35's since most of us don't even have 33's and the only other trucks with this lug pattern are trackers, and the older 2wd full sizes

Finally! You know. I kinda like the tall skinny tire. Makes it look like a real mud truck. But I'd say they arn't the best for asphalt driving. Nice truck!
