Default 07 1500 clears 35's with 4 inch lift?

You think a 4 inch lift will clear some 35s on 20inch rims?

Height wise, shouldn't be a problem. Width? Depends on how wide you plan to go... Might post up some tire sizes you have been pondering. That would give everyone a better idea on whether to confirm they'll work or not.

I will try and get some pics, but my current set up is 35/12.50/20 dick cepek mud countrys on kmc monsters. Just a leveling kit no lift, Little bit of rub at full lock.

They would make a loud rubbing noise when I had the stock dodge mud flaps on because they kind of flare out their not smooth so I bought some smooth ones, their smaller but now it just slides on them doesnt make any noise where the lugs caught on the stock mudflaps.

My rims are 20x10 with a -12 offset. I have no issues clearing anywhere else

While it won't be any time soon, I would like to do a 4 inch lift and run 35x12.5 with the stock 20s as well. I have done a lot of research and reading and according to everything I have seen it should be no problem.

Check out the fitment info on level kits, 4 inch lifts, and 6 inch lifts at the bottom of this page.

If the 4 inch will be anything like the stock upper control arm, you will need spacers or offset rims or the 12.5 tire will rub near the upper ball joint

dont know about 20s with 35s but i do know that i was running a 35/12.50-17 mud terrain tire on an offset aftermarket rim with no spacer, dont know the offset of the wheel but they didnt scrub at all and looked great on the truck no rubbin even at full turn and all my dodge has on it is the 2.5in leveling kit on an 04 dodge ram 1500
