On a OBS that may be close :whip: :crazy:

it is too close.

i got an 84 1500 ecsb with a belltech 4/6. and im runnin a 255/35/20, works great, and honestly, i couldnt go much bigger. however, u will need to either trim out or roll up the fender lip, especially on the passenger. bc of how gm built their trucks, the body is not perfectly centered on the frame. it is off center towards the drivers side. but, as far as everything else goes, you'll be fine. just dont go crazy with speed bumps and pot holes, you'll dent your rims faster than u can say boo.

Not to be mean, but it's just fender lips, it's easy to roll them up...

Just go with a 4/6 and just roll them, it's not noticible and the 4/6 will look alot better than a 2/4 IMO.

Get some "tin snips" and cut the top part of the lip in a few places so that the lip will bend up. then with a piece of 2" steel square tubing that has a notch cut in the top of it insert the notch into the lip and push inward on the tube. It's pretty easy like this, but you could also use channel locks or pretty much anything that has a good grip to it.
