    Default 35's on 2012 Z71 2.5" RC lift ???

    Anybody running the Exact setup?

    2012 Silverado Z71 4x4 - 2.5" Rough Country Lift - Factory 18" rims

    Want to put 35's - How much rub, if at all? Some say no rub some say tons of rub.

    I know I can do 33's with no rub for a fact.

    I can 100% GUARANTEE that 35's Toyo Open Country MT's will NOT fit on a 2.5" Rough Country lift on a 2012 Silverado Z71 4X4 without major major trimming.

    I ended up with 33's but DAMN they are beautiful and definitely quieter than the Nitto Mud Grapplers.

    Sorry, I just caught your thread or I would have told you that 35s will not fit, regardless of width. They barely fit my truck and I have the Rancho 4", which really provdes 5+" of lift.

    Now onto your truck...the new treads look great add a toughness to it. I've always liked the look of those Nittos and I have heard good things about them. Nice Job!

    2" or 2.5" leveling kit = 33's

    6" lift = 35's

    gotta love the way these were designed
