    well i have 33's on mine and i had to do some pretty good trimming just to get them to stop rubbing. i really want to go with 35's myself but i just dont see how i can if i wanna be able to turn my wheels.

    toxic if i'm not mistaken your wheels are 20x10 that is the reason you had to do the trimming. on a 9" width wheel and 12.5" width tire 35's will clear just fine.

    well i went with -25mm which comes out to 4" backspacing. it pushed the wheel out quite a bit further to give me more clearance but the rubber piece in the front of the fender well still had to be trimmed about 2". it would only rub and make noise when backing up and turning hard. you could probably fit 35's but you would have to do some major cutting on that rubber piece and also probably the bumper. no matter what your backspacing there just would not be enough clearance to clear the corner of the bumper. i know it has been done but im sure there was alot of nice rubbing involved.

    i will be running a 35x12.5x18 mounted on a 18x9 with 5" backspacing from what i'm told by lifted trucks and lift companies i will not have any rubbing issues, i'm also removing the lower valance (which serves no real important purpose). My friend you will be fine with 35's on a 9" rim and at least 5" of backspace.
