Default Yet another tire question
Well I supposed to pick up a set of 20x10 wheels with tires, but the guy said they back ordered his new wheels for at least a month. So I said nevermind, and thanks anyway.

So the new question: will 35x12.5 20 fit with a level and 1 1/2"wheel spacers on the stock (non chrome) wheels? I know I'd need 1/4"spacers to avoid rubbing the control arms anyway with that wide of a tire. I'm worried about rubbing the fender or bumper. I wouldn't mind trimming the wheel well liners, but would rather not have to trim the fender or bumper.

Any help would me appreciated.

The stock wheels are 20x9 +19 offset. So adding 1.5" wheel spacers effectively makes them -19 offset. With 35x12.5's on that setup you'll definitely need to trim but it should only be the plastic fender liner. I wouldn't expect you to need to touch the pinch weld or the bumper. This is all assuming you have at least a 2.5" level or Bilsteins at 2.8".

I thought 35/12.5's fit on stock rims with a leveling kit on the 02-05's. Maybe I'm mistaken.
