reguardless between 4.5 and 6.5 you should still cut the same for a 35" tire IMO

im at 6.5 and 35's. for the front i cut along the line where the stock flare met the fender, and the rear i did the relief cuts and folded it before the seam. turned out good, tires dont rub anywhere on the fenders

I wont bust on you like a lot of people would, but future reference, with the exception of the most specific questions, the search function can almost always yield what you are looking for. This is a big community, if you are wondering if something is possible, there is more than likely 15 guys that have done it and they probably have a writeup for it. Lucky to have such a great forum.

Back on topic, lots of people with different variations of that setup on this thread:

Im on RC Xseries 4.5" and I feel i would have plenty of room for 35's with proper bumpstopping. My 33x10.5's have all kinds of room.
