do you need to regear for 35s?

So I'm looking into new wheels and tires for my jeep and I want to get 35s if I don't need to regear. If I do then I'm goin with 33s. How does that plan sound?

The quick answer is 'yes' unless you're in a 2012 Rubicon auto with 4.10s.

Lots of threads on this...lots..
You will notice a reduction in performance for daily driving, and if your offroading you better regear.

As you're in a 2007, you're Jeep will turn into a crippled dog with 35's and no regearing, like Comac90 said.

Get the 33's.

A recent thread:

Want 35s dont want to REGEAR ??

easy answer is no but your jeep will go from a turtle to a snail, and if you have a auto tranny it might not last to long, regear is the way to go.

Regear is +/– $1500.

You're gonna get the most bang for the buck outta 15" wheels. Probably cost you the same (or maybe less) to get 15" rims AND tires, as opposed to tires alone for 17 or 18" rims.

Figure $1200 an axle depending on location. Wheel size depends on width of tire 10.50, 11.50, 12.50. All will fit on an 8" wheel. I had 12.50's on 10" and liked how they looked.

Check out Duratrac's or KM2's Cost is a relative thing.
