I have seen plenty of trucks with 35's with a leveling kit that look great. But with a 4.5"-6" lift I've only seen a few and they just look too small IMHO. Theses wheel wells are just huge. As far as mileage goes, I believe there is about a 1 mpg difference.

Here is my old 08 on 35's


And on 37's


And my current 2010 on 37's

Robert , so you only lost about 1 mpg with the 37's how about with the 35's you have to add all that up 1 for the 37's plus?? for the 35's do you DD with the 37 toyo's how do they do on the highway and noise wise you have to campare to stock wranglers as that's all i have right now and no others close that i know for a comp.

Stock I was getting 13-14, 35's 12-12.5, and 37's 11-12 with the DPF on. All my trucks have always been daily drivers. Noise wise will all depend on the tire you get. I have had the Nitto Mud Grapplers at one time on a Dodge Mega Cab and they were so loud I couldn't hear myself think. Since then I have always gone with the Toyo MT's and am very happy with them. The noise is not bad at all.

so we are only talking about 2 mpg for the 37's give or take not to bad and being tuned helps out anyways. If i did a mud tire it would be the toyo's or the kumho's hear good things about both! it is almost a given to do a 35 or 37 tire and stay away from the metric sizes due to most only holding 50psi and being load range D's most muds are E rated and 65psi that will keep that dash light off!

Well in my case, I still have to deal with the light, but I put a piece of tape over it. The F350 LB calls for 80 psi in the rear and the max pressure on my Toyo's is 65 psi. I think they Ford does that just to drive us crazy.

I stand corrected. 4.5" with 35's looks really good. Great looking truck man.
