hi all got a new truck my first chev despite i worked there for 3 years. anyways picked up a 91 ext cab 1500 4x4, has a 3" body lift. was wondering if it could clear 35's. if so will it take 15x8" rims. i cant find any tires in 36x12.5x16 so i hope 15's are an option. i dont mind if it rubs a little and i dont mind doing a little triming. the truck only cost 1500 and is gonna be a bush truck. hope it can hold up to my abuse like my toyota used to. if 35's wont fit will 33's? it has 31's on no prob now but they are bald, lots of extra room though. thanks for your help

33's should fit with rubbing, a good alternative is trimming the fenders like yoiu said. If i remember right, stuckle on here ran 35's with a 3'' body lift but i beleive he trimmed a bit. I wouldnt crank your torsion bars too much, hard on parts and is a bandaid more than a fix.Congrats on the new truck. Chevy[5]

Lotta trimming with the 35's probably. The wheel well just isn't wide enough to fit a 35 without LOTS of trimming. I have an 83, 3/4 ton chev and i have 35's on a 4 inch suspension, but i had to do mega trimming to make it work without rubbing. I'd go with 33 at the most.

do you know what kind of tires they where and what kinda rims and backspacing?

Mines older, but I had 35's on it with trimming. Those
"35's" were the same outside diameter as a interco 33, though.
