123Jato I am on 33" mickey Thompson mtz s with no lift, only rubbing is at full flex. Looks great and performs great offroad. No reinforcements needed. I just today purchased a 3.5" metalcloak lift and will be installing 35" tires soon. Any bigger comes at a cost of many thousands of dollars more.

I would get the tires an drive on them an see if your ok with it but more then likely for 33's or 35's you want a regear
What's on yours? Can you post a bigger picture?

Price is not too big an issue, but obviously saving money is nice. So basically I'm looking for the happy medium. From what I have seen and read, my gut feeling would be to get 33 or 35 inch tires, but I'm not sure. From here, can anyone recommend good brands?

2) What size suspension lift? I don't want to risk any rubbing. What's the general rule for tire size vs lift size? Again, can anyone recommend good brands? There are so many different lift choices, how do you pick one?

3) With bigger tires, do I need to upgrade my axles or gearing? I've read I do and I've read I don't on different threads. If so, what should I be looking into?

Thanks in advance!
