    I meant tires :rolleyes:does it mess with your gear ratio? Someone told me it could. Like it would not shift when it was supposed to

    I've read this in a lot of places and from my experience even going to 37's I've had zero shifting issues. Caveat is the truck is supercharged so I'm sure that helps quite a bit. I doubt 35's would do any harm.

    Had my 35"s for a few months now and truck feels completely normal. Shifts up and down just fine. Only thing I noticed was slight loss in acceleration power since the weight of the tire being much more than the stock tire.

    It does change your effective gear ratio, but not so much as most people would notice. The biggest issue is that it throws off your speedometer calibration. Hypertech makes a calibration module to compensate for tire size changes.

    You should also expect to take a hit on your MPG. The tires are heavier, and usually more grippy. The lift itself, raises the profile of the truck, so that has an impact on its aerodynamics.
