They will maybe rub a bit turning and compressing your suspension. My 35s used to rub the inner fender b4 the lift. My buddy had a procomp level and 35s and it didnt rub unless you compressed while turning

my truck has a pro comp 4" with pro comp 35s I rub on the lower plastic piece on the bumper..i trimmed that down and no more rubbing there. However when i turn hard like into a parking space it rubs on the front springs a little bit, like right at that clamp/warp thing that holds the springs together.
