Heh Heh, no doubt--what tire pressure do you use when you go off-road??

If you drop to 12/14psi, then your 35's are at about 32", right??, why'd you get 35's ??

My 33\", which are actually 33.2 at 30psi and they're not swampers !!

I'm just commenting on the statement that, "you NEED 35's/34's to go wheeling, thats BS !!

We all wheel in different environments and with a jeep, you don't "NEED" anymore than you want, for YOUR JEEP--RIGHT !!

Absolutely correct... I agree with you on that subject... I never said that you NEED 35's to wheel... And the reason you need gears has more to do than just the diameter of you tire its also the weight of the tire... My tire does not get lighter when I lower the pressure, it simply gets a flat spot on the bottom of it... And by your terms... all you should ever need to be satisfied is a 31 because whenever YOU lower the pressure in YOUR tire according to YOU its only about a 31... SO why even go to 33's?

I told him that if he gets 33's then he will regret it if he is thinking about 35's... I know this from personal experience... You are arguing with numbers and MANY peoples personal experiences... Why dont you just give it up

One more observation, as if one was needed. When measuring the true usefull diameter of a tire, you just need to know the distance from the ground up to the center of the hub and multiply by 2. No matter what the tire says, that is the rolling diameter the drivetrain is supporting. My 305X75R17s calculate to 34.2", but at 28 psi it measures 16" from the ground up to the hub. 16X2=32"s. That is what I put in with my superchip and the speedo is right on with the GPS. If I carried more pressure, my rolling diameter would increase. I'm guessing that the stock BFG MTs that are supposed to be 32", measure 15" from the ground to the hub carring 35psi. I know this to be true, because I gained 1" of clearance when I put the MTRs on.

Just another observation.

I am not saying that anything is wrong with 33's... If that is all that you want/need then that is a fine size tire that is cheap and plenty capable...If that was all that he wanted/needed then he would not ask about a 35 though... He more than likely asked because he wants a 35 but was worried that it would cause problems with his current gear set up... But it will not... That is all that was meant by my entire argument, for some reason, it took you the entire thread to figure that out (or give up) or either you just like seeing how many different ways Ill explain a simple concept if you continue to disagree with me...

My 3.21 were dogs with the 34" tires.

33's are the max for the gears. 35's would be like filling the cab with everything possible for weight.
