throwing some thoughts around in my head lately...at what point do you think 35's look to small?...i have a 4" lift right now(2.75 bills and 1.25Rc Body) and the 35's look well suited...im tossing around the idea of adding in a 6" RCX lift...i wanna drop my bills back to 2" but ill still be at 9.25" of lift...im thinking 35's are gonna look aweful tiny at this point. even if i have a rcsb...with the bills, body lift and a 6" rcx i have alot of options on lift from 4 now, up to 10" with the bills maxed...on the other hand i can get a great price on a set of bfg 37x12.5's....then i need new brakes any info or pics appreciated.

its more a preferance really, 35's are good tires and I can almost fit em good on my truck which has no lift. 37's are gonna look a little more beefy, to me anything else after that and you might as well build a mud truck

i understand, I did save up and get this beast in cash. I ran the bank out of hundreds and had several large stacks of fifties. it was fun though, knowing I own it

I actually am running 285/70R17's so it looks beefy enough for me. I didn't realize how expensive they were though, geesh, close to $300
