So i have a 91 chevy k1500 that is sitting at stock height at the moment. i acquired some 35x12.5 wheels and i tried throwing them on today. to keep it short the tire can turn about 25 degrees to the left before hitting the bumper. could i make it clear just by cranking the keys? or i wouldn’t be against putting it on 3 inch block and 3 inch lift torsion keys. i’m just wondering if there’s anybody that could give me a little direction toward making these beasts fit without breaking the bank if possible.

I wouldn’t crank the keys all the way, we always cranked the keys and ran 285s on our work trucks and they rode horribly bad.

As for as fitting 35s with enough cutting I’m sure they would but i wouldn’t cut it unless it was a trail rig.

33x12.5 is the max without at least a body lift. No way 35s will fit, 6" suspension lift would be your best option

As stated above. You can get away with a 32" or a 285 tire with a few cranks on the torsion keys, but even 33s will rub without trimming and/or body lift.

You need a real lift kit to get 35's working properly.
