Default 33 vs 35 inch tires

Hey guys,
I am going to get new cooper STT tires with cragar soft 8 wheels. Now I am trying to decide if I was 33 or 35 inch. I have a level and I am getting a 3 inch perf body lift.

Thoughts?

Is there any reason not to go with 35`s? Would I see any MPG difference between 33`s and 35`s?

Thanks

Level with body lift will give you about 5" of lift up front, perfect for 35s.

35"s, 33"s would look tiny on your truck with a level and body lift,

With 5" of lift on the front and 3" in the rear, it'd have to be some serious off-roading...

Go with the 35's, you wont have any problems with doing anything unless its some serious pre running

well the 35's are gonna screw with your speedo. unless you can recalibrate. and mpg's are gonna go by by, funny how no one mentions mpg's when that is one of the op's concerns. just observing, I have no thoughts on this either way .....yet.
