33 vs 35 tires

Unlimited with 35's look great but what dis-advantage in wear and tear, mpg, ride ect. come vs one lifted to fit 33" tires? What lift is needed for the 33"?
What lift is required for the 35's? What off-road capability is gained or lost with the 35 vs 33 tires?
Open to all suggestions

need no lift for 33's but will need better backspacing with either new wheels or wheel spacer. 33's are less stressful on your Jeep and you won't have to regear. It will knock your MPG's down to 14 to 15MPG around town

35's are a lot more stressful. You will need to regear, You need a 2 1/2" lift and/or flat fenders. if you don't have a Rubi you should sleeve and gusset the front axle. Your MPG's will be hit hard to about 11 to 12 MPG's
