I've got 285/75's and to be honest, I kinda wish I went with 35's. Obviously though, there's a big difference it what it takes to run the 35's. You've gotta consider all the cutting, CMC, big drop in gas mileage, regear, driveshaft angle, etc. With my 285's, I didn't really have to do much besides replace my UCA's and now I only rub at full flex. I want to commit to the 35's, I just don't know...

Also, is it just me, or do you wish there were a 35 that is thinner than 12.5". I feel like 10-11" would look sweet.

I’m going with 35s on mine. I’m still hesitant about going this route just because of all the additional money I have to spend in order to make this happen but I’ve been on 285 70 17 and wish I’d gone bigger.

That’s why I didn’t do it the first time. If funds didn’t matter I definitely would’ve.

What else did you do besides the CMC?

Just some minor plastic trimming and a small part of the front bumper where it would hit on compression while turning.

You do the ECGS bushing? Driveshaft angle still fine?

Lol. 37’s would be dope, but I’m happy with 35’s. I still use my truck as a daily driver. Lol. Just bought it in January and I already almost got 7k miles. Lol
