I have 18 inch rims on my truck and was wondering if a set of 35/1250r18 would work without scrubbing i have a 3 inch body lift on it

My car has 288000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Experienced mechanics share their insights in answering this question :
They will most likely not fit without trimming the metal. I think you will not be able to go bigger than 32/1150 without trimming. It will also depend on the type of tread on the tires. Some of those knobby side walls rub when a normal tire would not. I have seen 3.5 inch lifts that rub with the 35/1250. Also, it still depends on the offset of the 18 inch rims from the standard you have. Any offset may help but am not completely sure.

Recommended Wheels

Generally speaking, Silverados can accommodate wheel sizes ranging from 17 inches to 22 inches in diameter.

Do 20×10 -18 wheels on 35″x12. 5″ tires fit on a 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4WD with Rough Country Suspension Lift 3.5″? Yes they do!
That`s why I run a 4.56 gear ratio with 35″ tires. This gives me decent fuel efficiency at highway speeds, and enough low end power to throttle through difficult obstacles.
AXLE RATIO

The 2021 Silverado 1500 provides two axle ratios: 3.42 and 3.23. If you`re looking for a higher towing capacity, choose the 3.42 rear axle ratio.

For instance, your vehicle has a set size of rims, but you can buy different sizes of tires to fit those rims, as long as the middle of the tires is the correct size. That being said, a vehicle with bigger rims will often be able to fit larger tires than other vehicles.
If you decide to use mismatched tires or wheels, you need to ensure that each axle of your vehicle contains the same tires. On a 2-axle vehicle, the two front tires should match and the two rear tires should match. Rear tires do not necessarily have to match the pair of front tires.
Most Trucks Can Fit Up to 33” Tires With No Lift Kit

You can fit up to 33” tires with no lift kit needed and very little additional adjustments. For reference, the standard stock truck wheel is between 16” and 18”, meaning 33” tires is a substantial upgrade.

35-inch tires are a popular upgrade size. 35s will get your truck an additional inch of axle clearance over 33-inch tires and provide improved traction while wheeling.
A body lift will likely have a negligible impact on fuel consumption. Lifting the body adds extra surface area to your truck, which decreases aerodynamics, but only by a tiny bit. If you use the additional space to install larger tires, your truck will weigh more, and get marginally worse mileage.
Whether you`re hauling, lounging, or moving, the 5.3-liter V8 is your ticket to perfection. This engine delivers up to 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, which gets the job done.
A Lift is Needed in Most Cases

A lift is required on most vehicles to accommodate 35-inch tires. The lift size needed can range from 3.5-6 inches. An exception is the new Ford Bronco, which requires no modification to fit 35s. Some trims even come with them from the factory!

My AC does not always work. If I fiddle with the blower knob I can ususally get it to work on the lowest setting.
ANSWER : Hi There,
It sounds like you may have a faulty blower motor resistor. The highest speed setting may still work because in most cars in the highest fan speed settings the current bypasses the blower motor resistor. In some cars, if the resistor is failed, the fan may stop working completely. Another reason a blower motor resistor may fail is when the blower motor has a mechanical problem or when a foreign object jams the blower motor fan blade and prevents it from spinning freely. This leads to increased current through the resistor and causes it to overheat and fail. I would suggest having an expert from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose your system to determine what may be causing the fan not to work properly.

I changed the fuel pump and truck ran great for 3 days. Now after 3 days, the truck dies. It will start running for a few minutes, then dies like before.
ANSWER : Hi there, thanks for writing in. I’d be happy to help. It sounds like you should disconnect the connector to the fuel pump and inspect it for any signs of getting hot. The female connections may be too loose on the fuel pump and lose contact after running and getting hot. If there are indeed any signs of problems, then I’d suggest replacing connector and adding dielectric lube to pins before installation. This should solve the problem, but if you continue to experience issues, feel free to reach out to us for help again.

Hello I recently hit a pothole and damgaged a rim I had. I had to replace with all new tires and rims. I first got stock rims then
ANSWER : A road force balancer is meant to check tires for pull in one direction or another and balance a tire up to about 60 mph. Some tire balancers will check tires for higher speeds. You may have an imbalance that most machines cannot measure if it comes in after 65 mph. You can see if there is a shop near you that can do high speed balancing? You may have a front axle that is causing the vibration also. I suggest installing the original rims and tires on the front only to see if problem is still there and if so have the front axles checked for damage and replaced if any damage or looseness is noted.

I changed fuel pump and truck ran great for 3 days. Now after 3 days truck dies. It will start runs few min then dies like before
ANSWER : Check the bottom of the fuel tank for sediment. Age and mileage could have accumulated a lot of it at the bottom of the tank. If you did not, check and change the fuel filter. Rule of thumb – replace the fuel filter any time you replace a fuel pump. Also, check the wiring for any chaffing on the fuel pump when you remove it. While your problem is kind of unique, I have seen many GM truck fuel tank baffle loosen over time, occasionally rubbing against the fuel pump can intermittently short it out and/or block the fuel pump pick up. To have this diagnosed, consider having a certified expert from YourMechanic inspect the stalling issue to have this corrected.

I parked my truck for 5-10 mins. Tried to turn it on, now it wont start, called a tow tow truck 15-20mins later my truck turned on
ANSWER : It is very likely that you have a powertrain control module failure. This can happen often on many GM vehicles. I would recommend having the powertrain control module tested and replaced as necessary in order to resolve this issue. After the powertrain control module is replaced, a reflash procedure will be required so that the vehicle can relearn all of its primary engine data. Once the reflash is completed, your vehicle should no longer have this issue.

Truck horn is beeping without truck being turned on. Why?
ANSWER : The problem is in the horn pad. The horn pad may be damaged or changes in temperature can cause the contacts to touch in the horn pad causing the horn to beep. you may need to call the company to come and fix it or remove the horn fuse until it is fixed.

My car ac a year ago stopped working on settings 123 only works on 4 I did the research so I do know it is the blower motor an ha
ANSWER : In your application, there is a replaceable blower motor resistor block. The resistor block permits multi-speed operation of the fan. If some fan speed settings work, but not others, the first thing to do is test the resistor block with a volt ohmmeter. If you desire testing, and replacement, as needed, please request a blower motor/resistor block diagnostic and the responding certified mechanic will get this taken care of for you.

With regard to the A/C system, if gauge pressures (high and low) are normal when the system does operate, there are really only two principle possibilities for intermittent operation. One is circulating moisture in the system (due to a saturated dryer) which periodically freezes (and thaws) at the expansion valve and the other is a failure in the A/C control system, that is the clutch, sensors, and other electronics that control the compressor cycling. The cause of the problem can be readily found if you request an A/C system diagnostic.
