Need a vote on tire size...

Well, after recent mods my tires look tiny and i'm going to be looking into picking up a new set...

What do you guys think i should go with...

33x12.5x15
or
35x12.5x15

If i do the 33's, i'll most likely ride on them for a while and then regear within 6 months to 4.88...i wont upgrade my steering or brakes and wont do anything axle related until i break it.

If i go with 35's...i'll probably upgrade my steering, run a super 35 or ford 8.8, and regear to 5.13's at the same time. I'd save the brake upgrade for a little bit down the road.

Currently running 32x11.5x15's on Mickey Thompson Limited Signature wheels...which look tiny lol

What do you think?

Unfortunately, you are stuck with 4.88's at the lowest as long as you have a D30 up front. I have this same problem.

You know you want 35's. Unless your 32's are ready to be replaced now, I would not drop a bunch of money on new 33's. Maybe a used set? The money you save will help you get your Jeep where you want it.
You know you want them! lol

I like the new flat fenders BTW. The look great.

Bigger is better. As long as you got the money to upgrade everything I say 35's.

Sounds good...looks like i'll be doin the 35's!

I kinda figured that would be the answer...i've got a ton of room now with the flat fenders and flat rear flares...

I'll see what i can make happen in the very near future...
should look good with the 35's on there as well...

Dave, thanks for the heads up...i completely forgot about not bein able to go above 4.88 on the d30...they should do fine though since i rarely hit the highway. I usually opt for the R6 when i do any highway travel (except in winter)
