35 inch tires on 22 inch rims

Does anyone know if theres enough clearance on a 2001 chev truck to run 35 inch tires on 22 inch rim?. I put a 3 inch body lift on and 2 inch leveling kit. I dont want to buy the tires unless I know for sure. But I have the 22 inch rims so I'm looking for answers. Thanks to anyone who can answer my quetsion.

Yeah its a Z71. 35 should fit. the truck looks tall enough as long as I dont have to start cutting fenders..........lol

I'll have to check with the tire shops or sell the rims and buy smaller diameter. Hopefully I dont have to do that.

i have and 03 1500 hd crew cab with a california super lift 12" and no body lift running 20s and toyo mt 35x12.50 and i just clear 35s the best way to do it is have the shop mount up the front set and set it on the ground then turn the wheel both ways to see if it going to hit but you have to make sure that if they do clear you need to remember that when you turn a corner that you dont hit a bump and crunch a fender or blow a tire hope this helps thanks
