I need new tires soon and I am currently running 33 Bfg At. So should I stay with 33s or go with the 35s because I can get them a little cheaper. If I did go with the 35s how much mpg would I aspect to loose and would I see a noticeable power loss with the inline 6 ? I have 3.73 gears and I do not plain to regear with these axles.

Side note: I do have upgraded steering and brakes.

I don't run 35s, but here is the original MTR thread as I'm sure you'll find comments about 35s there.

Either way will be driving around with the o/d off. So id go with the 35's, You have the 44, Steering and brakes. If you going to take a dig, Might as well run the bigger of the two.
You will most likely see a 1-2mpg drop. To each his own though, Good luck

Stay with 33's, they will be cheaper and more comfortable in the long run.

I wouldn't conside running 35's with less than 4.10 gears.
