Tj currently 33s maybe 35s

Hey I currently have a 02 TJ with a 3" lift and a 3" body lift. I have 33s on it right now and I need to buy new tires. I found some new 33s general grabbers, but then noticed the 35s were $5 cheaper. So I had the idea to get 35s instead. I'm curious as to if any thing would rub too much I think the only thing would be if I was turning sharply. Also I have rock crawler front tube fenders

your steering is going to be shot, your rear axle isnt strong enough for them, your front should be replaced or reinforced, you should regear, and your brakes will need some work to stop them (especially if you drive an automatic).

shoulda stuck with 33...and just personal opinion, drop the body lift to a 1.25 instead of a 3.

According to JP Magazine a six inch lift will need an additional 1" to clear. In the real world you might be fine as you are and just rub a little on full lock. The link I found is below. I've found I like the look of 35's but I like the drivability of 33's. Good Luck!

Thanks for the input guys. I ordered the 35s the day after I posted this and I like them so far everything feels pretty good I. have 4:11 gearing right now. They look really nice! I would have probably dropped the body lift a bit if I stayed with 33 here's a before and after.
