    Anybody get 35’s and wish they went smaller or vice versa?

    I like how 35s look and and trying to decide if I want to go through all the work of making them not rub before I pull the trigger on a set of tires. Or should I just get 295s and call it a day?

    they are very close in size. Pretty much same height but slightly wider for the 35"s. The 295/70 will fit the spare tire spot without extra work, also a bit less stress on the suspensions/steering components.
    I have 295/70.

    I didn't think it worth the hassle trying to get that 12.5 wide tire in there. The 295's look perfect but I will admit I had to do quite a bit of trimming to get them to fit, It would have been worse if I had went 12.50

    Part of me wishes I'd of went with 35x12.5's, but I'm pretty damn happy with 295/70/s. If the selection gets better in 285/75's I may go to those for my next set.

    I've got 295s and am going to 305 70 18. I want a little more width to protect the wheels offroad and a little more height won't hurt either. Just haven't decided between Micky Thompson MTZ of Yoko Geo G003.

    I tried 35's on mine and did not fit. Went to a 295 and fit perfect, with minor trimming of course and body cab mount grind.

    This was with 295 Toyo MT's, now she has 295 Nitto Ridge Grapplers, didn't need MT's

    I would run 295's and be done with it! I think the size is going to be close enough that it won't be a big difference, especially with after market wheels. 295's would be easier to fit and still look great.

    295s seem like the way to go. Guess there really isn’t much argument for the 12.5 wide tire

    Another benefit too, tires are usually cheaper in the 295's!
