What size wheels, if you say 20s I am sorry I am going to say Duh...

You have an 06 so if you had 33s on the truck they are actually smaller than stock which are 34.1 tall.

Worse case you can go back to stock size for about $220 a piece for wrangler ATs.

You looking for a mud tire or AT?

Go to Discount Tire Direct, a sponsor. You can get Nitto Terra Grapplers reasonable. If you are going to go wider than a LT285/70/17 you will need wider wheels or your tires will wear prematurely, it causes them to flex in places the tires were not designed to flex.

You can still get the Nitto's in 18's. I am fixing to buy some myself. LT325/65/18. I get to have new wheels too. Yippie!!!!!!!!!!

Actually his are 285/65/18's

What are the best 35" a/t tire that would fit a stock rim, give plenty of mileage, and do well with towing?

I think that 285/65/18 is as large as will fit the stock wheels. Give Sean a call at Discount Tire Direct and he can give you all the info you need. I know that to run 315's you need an 8 1/2" wheel and to run 325's you need a 9" wheel to have proper fitment.
