If it's a mall cruzer, 35's will fit. If you plan to be off-road and flex it, 33's. That's with the lift and a 1" body lift....that's my experience and I can rub those 33's if I didn't limit upward travel.

Put tj flares on it (with associated cutting) and u can go 35's with no problem

Obviously there are instances when u will want to limit up or down travel. But it's up to the individual deciding on what works for them. Personally I'm set up to go to 37's but I DO KNOW I'm gonna kill axles with that set up.

With some fender trimming you can run 35's. However, without the proper gearing. You will be lugging out bad. You will have very little power and your gas mileage will suffer greatly.
