I went with 33's and they only rubbed the wheel well when they were brand new for about 10 miles worth of left and right turns until it cleared up. Im happy with them and get good mileage. Depends what you want. I wouldn't do 35's. Bad mileage, bad axle wrap, bad rubbing if on a level kit leaf spring truck.jmo.

Do they rub at full lock? Are they 03-04 trucks?
