Debating 35s instead of 37s

I finally bought some Novakanes! I've had the truck for 2 years and have wanted those wheels since the day I bought it! The truck currently has 37x13.50R18 Mickey Thompson ATZs. Since the new wheels are 20 obviously I need tires too. I am going with Toyo's for the new wheels but am debating going with 35s instead of 37s. What performance increases will I see with the 35s over the 37s? (i.e. horsepower gains, fuel mileage gains)? Does anybody have pics of a 6" lift with 35s? Thanks for you help!

I know you will see a 1.5-2 mpg bump in town going to 35's over 37's as thats what I lost when I made the switch to 37's. But I got a 1 mpg bump on my hwy milage with the 37's over the 35's. I can't say how much power you will gain but I noticed a small loss as well when I made the switch. But it's worth it for the look! and 35's on a 20 will look small on a 6" had you stayed with 18's it might of been ok, but 35's look small on a 20" wheel imo. And if you have ran 37's before you will be back trust me as 35's just fill the bill

Thanks man! I never get tired of seeing your truck! I did PMFs 3-link kit simply because of the way it looked on your truck!

35's are gonna look awful small with a lift and your flares.

I have 35's on my truck totally stock suspension.
