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.

I got 35x12.5’s with a 6” lift and I still needed to do a cmc to be able to drive off road without rubbing.
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?
