    35s. You will have to rim some plastic and remove the front flaps but they fill the wheel wells nicely

    35 will look sweet, but with 12 mm offset, you may have to do the body mount mod. But then again, you may not. Each truck is somewhat different. I have 18 mm offset with 295/70/18 (11.73 wide according to Nitto's web site) and I am very very close to the body mount.

    For large tires with low wheel offset, the rubbing typically occurs at the body mount (located toward the outer body of the truck). So the mod effectively cuts a portion of the mount so the tires will clear. Personally, this goes beyond what I wanted nor have the ability to do, so I went with 18 mm offset. Every truck is somewhat different, but anything lower, there's a certain chance you may have to do this mod. I knew going in that with 18 mm offset, 295/70/18 or 305/65/18 is just about the largest tire size I could go without having to do this mod.

    I have roughly 34.5" tires with my 3/1 lift. Only chopped plastic so far. I like the looks. I purchased the metal caps for the cab mount chop but haven't needed to install yet. With true 35s I might need to
