Here is what I'd be concerned with:
Are you using a track/fixie frame? If so then the rear spacing will probably not let you go much bigger than 28mm wide tire. If you get a 35mm(which is almost a MTB tire width) you will likely run into problems with frame clearance at either your chainstays, seatstays, brake bridge or seattube. In other words a 35mm wide tire is very likely to rub the frame if it is a track frame.
Unless you are running a 29er, hybrid, cyclocross frame I wouldn't try to fit anything larger than a 28mm tire on, unless your track end openings are like 3cm long.
So its not really the gap that is the problem, if you can fit the fat rear on the bike then go for it, but I'll be surprised if it fits.
