33's vs. 35's

hey guys,

I'm pretty new to the forum but I have been doing a lot of research on tires. I am lost right now because being 19 and trying to buy 1500 dollars worth of tires is kind of a big purchase for me. lol. damn college. Anyway, I have 33's right now (325/60/18) and I can't decide what to get for my next set. I really like the tires I have now which are hankook dynapro m/t but I have a 4.5" lift and I was thinking about moving up to 35's. I really would like to know the amount of power loss between the two sizes and how the road manners are when you move up to 35's. I'm aware that I will lose fuel mileage but you play you pay i guess lol. Any help or advice would be much appreciated. Oh and to clarify I have 3.73 gears in the rear end

Thanks

I would like to know all of the above as well. I have 33's and when I get these down I'm gonna go to 35's but I don't want to loose to much fuel mileage. But I had 35's on my other truck and they didn't really wander the road bad or anything like that. I haven't really had this truck in the rain with big puddles and stuff yet but my other one you know big wide tires hit puddles and it can scare you a bit.

I'm addicted to diesel and I step on it constantly!

I can't attest to the power loss, but I run 37's on my truck and know of a few other that run that size or bigger with no problems. Drives fine. I have taken my truck on 2400 mile road trips and I drive 80mi a day total, to and from work on 37's. So driveability should be fine. BTW, mine is a 7.3, but I also have 3.73 gears so I don't think it will be a huge problem.

Depends on the rim but there is about a 99.5% chance that it will need the fenders trimmed. (Don't forget 89% of statistics are made up on the spot)

Seriously though....Probably not without trimming. I had a buddy with a 2002 (A little different, I know) that ran 35's with a leveling kit and he still had to trim a hair on the fenders.

Thanks guys, like I say i just don't wanna lose all my low end torque by moving up to 35's. The truck is so fun right now because its fast! Im scared that if i go to 35's it wont be as much fun.
