35" to 33"

Anybody has moved from 35 tires to 33 tires!?? did you regret that!??

I'm thinking to move from my current 35x12.5x17 to 33x12.5x16...

Why not run 33s on the 17s? Still gives you a bit more sidewall than stock and saves you the hassle of buying new wheels.

Why are you considering this? Fuel mileage? You have already re-geared to 4:88's to run 35's. I would stick with 35's IMHO.

No not fuel mileage but i thought that 4.88 with 33' will match more since my jeep is auto.

Although i feel that it has now a plenty of power. Even with the original 4.11, it was fine...
