35" vs. 33"

Does anyone have a picture of 35 next to 33 with a person in the picture. I want to upgrade tires, but I do not want to go to big, or to small. Thanks

Just go with the 35's because eventually you will want to go bigger. Just save yourself the hassle... Just my .02 cents

I ewopuldnt say that w/o knowing what he is running... what gears hes running. what axles he has, steering, etc etc. Jumping to 35's requires more than one thinks.

If hes really asking this question then i think he should run 33's if its a choice between the 2

This post puts it in laymens (sp?) terms (talking about 35's):

Those heavy tires are also going to make your Jeep want to attack other cars. Sporty little go-fast cars will probably cut you off and slam on their brakes. I don't know why, but they do. You want to prevent your Jeep from seeking retaliation, so you are going to need some kind of brake upgrade.

They also have a tendency to make your Jeep lazy. Much like how lions (the king of the jungle) like to lie around all day... when you're Jeep becomes king of your neighborhood, it will begin to take it's sweet time getting places. You can fix this by regearing your differentials. There's much debate about what is perfect, but everyone agrees the stock 3.07 ratio is too high.

They are also going to want to make your Jeep hate itself. Big heavy tires will cause your Jeep to cause itself harm. Primarily, it is going to slit it's wrists (by that, I mean you are probably going to break your tie-rod). You are going to want to beef up your steering.

Sometimes, you may get unlucky and find that your Jeep just isn't strong enough to keep running. You need to give it some stronger legs ( a stronger rear axle) if your current legs (Dana 35) aren't strong enough.

You should also cover that god-awful midriff with some armor. How much? Well it depends. If your Jeep wants to go to war, get it some rockers, a steering box skid, an oil pan skid, and a gas-tank skid at the least, or else the enemy will gut your Jeep with their sharp weapons (rocks).

Don't forget your life-line! - a tow rope will be most helpful.

Later, you can accessorize.

Here is a Pic of my Jeep (5" Susp Lift, 1" Body Lift); with 33x12.5 Kumho MTs mounted: and New 35x12.5 Mickey Thompson Baja Claws sitting beside them



Here is a different angle:


Here's the measurement of the height difference:


Here is the Baja Claws shown after they were mounted (and Jeep in a rarely-seen clean state):
