Manual JK with 35" tires a bad idea?

Just got rid of the TJ and picked up a 2015 JK Sport S. I know I will be going with the BDS 3" lift for sure. I went with a 6spd manual so the question is: If I go with 35" tires on a 16" wheel will I have issues with power loss and complications with the speedo being off and all of that stuff? Figured I would go with 16" wheels since it is much cheaper than 17's. Would it be wise to just go with 33" tires? The 35" tires would be an all terrain, BFG KO2's to be exact. 16" wheel has 4" of back spacing so it should fit just fine. Let me know thanks!
