Tires for a TJ

I imagine this question has been asked a hundred times on here and I probably didn't dig deep enough to find my answer.

I have a 99 TJ 4.0L with a 4" Tera Flex lift. I need new tires and am interested in going from the 33x12.50 to something bigger, like a 35x12.50. Just curious if anyone has this combo and any issues you've faced. I still have stock gears, so I am a little concerned with a loss of power and and not getting the clearance I get with my 33s. Considering a 1" body lift but would like to avoid it. Also planning on new gear ratio down the road but not anytime soon.

post your stock gears,look on your rear axle there should be an aluminum tag on the bolts that have your ratio stamped on it,example it will read 3:73 or 4:11
also while your down there look at your oil fill plug on the rear diff cover let us know if its a plastic plug or a metal plug with a square hole in the center.
4 or 6 cylinder,auto or manual?

give as much info as possible to help us help you.

with that said I have seen a 4" lift run 35's but full flex will eat your fender flares.
a 4" suspension with a 1" bodylift will work
also what kinda lift do you have,suspension?body? or both?

Save your money and do a regear and new tires at the same time. You'll be much happier running the right gears rather then having a slugish motor.

i just picked my rig up today that got re-geared 4.56 from 3.73 on 33x12.5x15 and its a world of a difference. Definitely would recommend getting re-geared
