the weight/size difference from 33" to 35" tyres??

im running 33" muds at the moment with a 4.5" LIFT and a 1"BL, i have loads of room for 35" tyres..my axle (D35) has been strengthened with chromolly axle shafts and a powertrax no-slip locker and ive had no probs at all in 2-3 yrs of offroading (mud mostly!), i know the D30 will handle the up-size and i feel the rear will also...i know the weight of the 33" kumho KL71 is 55 LBS,..the 35" tyres im looking at range from 57 LBS to 67 LBS! i know the gearing helps but my YJ runs sweet and powerfull with 3.55 ratio, plus afew performance mods installed! if i went with a LIGHT 35" tyre (58 LBS) would it cause any problems other than maybe losing some of the 5th gear power?? any pix of YJ on 35" would be cool to see..cheers chaps! << UK JEEPER!!
