2010 with 35" tires and mods

Hey guys,

I am considering selling my 05 (which has been a great truck) and getting a new 2010.

I would like to run 35" tires with 4.10 gears on the 2010. Anyone have any pictures and fitment comments? What do I need to run 35s without issues (no dashboard air pressure warning lights, no CEL lights, etc).

Also does Smarty or anyone make a simple tuner to add a little bit of power but remain "low key" and reliable in an otherwise stone stock truck.

Thanks guys

Roger, don't forget to mention that you had to do a little trimming to get those 35's to not rub at the limits...(but dang that truck looks good!)
Igor - read some of the other posts regarding rear end ratios - if you're not doing some heavy-duty towing the 4:10's may be overkill for you.

Ditto on this, 3.73 with the 68RE is a sweet setup, even with 35's. Add a Smarty in the mix and you have plenty to go round....

More shots of Rogs truck, sittin next to mine...

Both trucks required similar trimming to prevent rubbing at full lock. Both have the same leveling kit. Mine will still rub some on a hard bounce while turning offroad. Its take a good bit to make it rub though, wont rub any on the street.

And for the record, I cant stand Rog's truck.....


It makes me want to go get a new one......

If you can't stand it, why do you have the same wheels? (LOL)

IMO trimming for 35's is ONLY required if you have the wrong offset wheels. I ran 35's on stock wheels for quite a while with NO leveling kit!! Good luck...

Looks like you have a third gen truck - the original post was talking about a fourth gen truck - different geometry, and besides, there is no "wrong offset" - just different offsets...

Stock only I'd say 35's and you may experience a slight bit of rubbing in some offroad situations.

Stock wheels and a leveling kit and no worries.

Any bigger than 35's and you should lift it some.

I wonder what size he can do without a leveling kit? Think 35's would still fit?
