32's or 33's for 6 speed with 3.21's?

Hi, all. I am searching for folks with the 6 speed manual, and 33 inch tires.

My fear is that I won't have enough power to get out of my own way if I put 33's on there. I would like to hear from others with the 3.21 and 33's set-up and their driving impressions. I have seen a lot of bad things as far as the tire size/gear ratio I have, and just want to know what folks that actually use this on a daily basis think. Heck, the FAQ's even say don't do it.

Thanks in advance for all replies and driving impressions.

the reason why everything is telling you not to is because it will suck. i have 4.10s with my 33s and i think that is to high. i need to get 4.56s for mine.

I have 31's with only a 3.07 and its completely fine. I know a guy up my street and one of my friends who have 33x12.5s with the 3.07s! I talked to them about it and they say its not the best but its definitely manageable (they drive to work on the highway everyday). So i cant imagine that getting the 33's would kill you, unless your looking to keep up with the sports cars going 0-60 in 5 seconds.

Just go with the 33's. You can always swap later if you really hate it. Its do-able.
