Question 33 or 35s with factory 18s? Please give opinions!!

Since rim/tire packages up here in AK are stupid expensive, I'm painting my stock 18's black and buying only tires. So, what would be better and look better on a stock height (maybe level with a 1 1/2" kit one day)?? The factory tires are 33.3"X10 right now. Please give me some help and opinions. Looking at Kumho KL71 btw. Thanks!!

I have 33's on stock wheels and I think they look good. However, I plan to do a leveling kit and will probably go to 35's when I need new tires.

With that said... Personally, I think wider tires that fill out the wheel wells (width wise) do more for the looks than a taller tire. But that is just me. The tires I have right now are 325/60-18's.

CCS could you post a pic of your tires?

My only worry is that if I get 35's but don't get the leveling kit, will I have rubbing issues? Do you or anyone else know if you can fit a 35X12.5 on stock 18" rim at stock height? Sorry for all the questions, I hope to order soon. Thanks again everyone!!

I have seen it done on stock 05-07 trucks and the 08 and up trucks seem to have just as much maybe even a little more clearance. I think you will be happy with the 35's.

the only problem i see with 35's is they might rub bad on the suspension components being that wide on a tire. Do you think they will? I'm not buying aftermarket rims right now. Anymore pics of trucks with 18s and 35's would be great thanks!!
