Dang yea I'm getting a teraflex full lift 2.5 and a 1.25 inch body spacers is 2 weeks but now my 33s look small and I love the 35 look but I don't know if I wait or just buy them now? What will u do

xcraftllc Well I might be mistaken but I thought that the rubber that replaces the wheel spoke length weighs more. I supposed we'd have to do some direct comparisons with some wheels and tires of the same type, but that is what I was told.

How does that work? A 15" wheel is going to weigh less than a 17" wheel of the same kind. Tires that fit bigger rims also typically have thicker sidewall to support them. Thicker sidewall= more weight.

We quickly upgraded her's to 35s (and a 4" lift which I would also highly recommend). You should be able to get a decent price for your 33s on CL since there are a lot of TJs YJs CJs etc who are kinda limited to them due to their stock axle strength.

Either way, I've heard nothing but good things about trail grapplers, also KM2s are supposed to be good. My wife and I run Procome Xtreme all terrains on 17s but they are daily drivers so road-ability, mileage, and wear are of huge concern. They're good long lasting cheap tires that don't make a sound on the road.
Thank you so much man.... And yes I will save for a month and upgrade to 35 nitto trails and 17s thanks .. Now I'm 100% in and I will upgrade, u know when I got my 33s I was really gating 35 but the guy in the Goodyear shop convince me to go with 33 lol
