33's or 35's? Need some experienced feedback

I'm just starting to put together my mods list for a new jeep build. My question is for those of you that ran 33's and now run 35's. What/where do you notice the biggest difference?

HAHAHAHAHA f*ck...

Acceleration for one if not regearing. More weight. Strain on stock tire carrier if you dont get a proper one. Rubbing if no lift.

Not regearing as I've been told the 6-speed 4:10 combo will handle it. Good advice on the tire carrier. Looking at 2.5" lift.

I am starting off with 2" lift on 33x12.5x15s.
Once my Jeep arrives, the lift goes first. Then I'll drive it a few weeks on the stockers.
The tires will be sitting in my garage.

It's a JK, 23R, 6MT.

I haven't owned a Wrangler (last was XJ on 32s) and I want to see what it'll do and what it needs before going up to 35s, doing Cs, etc.

Ah rubicon, it will handle it, but you may feel an impact in acceleration nonetheless, it just wont lose an amount of power that will justify a regearing.

2.5 lift will clear them fine with with the extended bumpstops that should be included in the kit.

Are you using the stock rims?

Haven't made a rim choice yet, just looking now at the offsets. 33's were my first choice, but someone said I should research putting 35's on.

With the stock rims you will need spacers due to their high backspacing, which will cause rubbing in arms and other components when full turning or flexing.

Read this on wheels and stuff.
Largest tire on stock JK? Here's your answer!

I went in between with a 315/70/r17 and I'm very happy. No clearance issues and still lots of meat on the wheels

just put 35s- you will feel the acceleration loss but it is not bad and probably drives better on the highway if you live in flatland USA.
