I just bought a 3.5" lift and am definitely going with 35" or 36" tires. But my 33" tires still have an easy 5k tread life still on them, would I still be able to run them or will it just look too ridiculous? I have stock fenders just incase anybody is curious.

It's your taste. It won't look ridiculous, but you will have a lot of wheel well showing between the top of the tire and the fender flare. If you're cool with the way it looks, that's all that really matters.

I know this sounds silly bit is there any more risk of tipping over with 33" instead of 35"? Could the 33s negatively affect me in any way vs the 35s?

I have the money to buy the 35s. I just wanted to use up my 33's and I have the lift sitting at my house. So I figured why not lift it, wear down the 33's then put on 35's

Doing the same thing. I still have a bit of mileage left on my 285/70/17 Duratracs, but am going 3.5" AEV. It's been ordered but not shipped yet. If I beat you to the install I'll post pics. I'm also planning on 35's, but only after I get more life out of these tires. My suspicion is it will have a lot of wheel well, I'll hate it at first, and it will encourage me to buy the 35's faster, but I'd rather spend the funds on a new front axle, locker, and re-gear first since I already have great tires.

I don't care what it looks like to others. If I can live with it, I will, if not, tires will come next.

I thought I was going to run my 33's until they were gone. ended up going out and buying 37's a week after installing my 3.5RK lift.

that being said, I drive a 2door and got like 5 inches of lift out of the 3.5 lift...

It won't look too silly, but you'll probably look at them everyday and think damn I need some more tire. I ran that way for a month or two until I moved up. Keep in mind that the more tread left on your 33s the better chance you'll have to sell them for a decent price to recoup some cost on the 35s. You should be able to unload some 33s all day long.

That is true, I could probably use them to pay for the mounting, balancing, and rotating. As well as alignment.
