Tire size

Debating on which tire size I should go with. 4:56 with 33's or 35's km2 mid terrain. Not a daily driver btw!

What axles do you have? The rear dana 35 will not handle 35s and your gear selection will also depend on what transmission you have.

What tranny do you have? I think it would be a waste of money to go from 4.56 to 4.88 there will not be that big of a difference.
I am running 35s with 4.10 and a 3 speed auto. I think that is a perfect ratio for mixed highway/offroad since I dont have Overdrive.

I have the 5 speed, NV3550. With 35's and 4.88's. They are almost to low of gears. Though I am going to 37s some day so it will work. I'm a little over 2.5k RPM @ 65mph

35s always go bigger. though 35s are the limit for the stock axles any bigger and you'll start bending housings Cs and snapping shafts
