Cant decide on size tires...poll

So one day before too long im going to buy tires, but im having a horrible time deciding if I want 33s or 35s. Its got 35 x 12.50 15s now with 4.10 gears, 3" spindle and 3" body lift...It did have add a leafs and cranked t bars too, but I cranked the t bars back down and took the leafs out, which droped it about 2" and rides much better now. Anyways, I like how it looks now, but I dont like the price of tires...especially 35s. And, also I should technically regear too. 33s are cheaper and I wont have to regear...less stress on everything too, but I dont know if the tires will look too small. Probably will go with either bfg at's 35s or 33s or duratracs if i get 33s. So help me decide. 35s installed will be almost $1k installed for bfgs plus cost of regearing or around $850 for duratracs or bfgs installed. Heres a pic of it as of now. Also want to add that I actually need tires, as these are cupped bad and have some dry rot.

How about spending the cash on a regear? 35\'s with 4.10\'s is mighty hard on the drivetrain. Truck looks good mang

I would go 33\'s IMO. I am in/was in the same situation as you. Yet, as much as I wanted 35\'s, my rig which is my DD would be to pricey(fuel) plus parts. Lol and 33\'s are killlin the mpg as is.

If you can afford a regear do it.

If not just get 33's and ditch the BL

I guess I'll go with 488s.
And I have American racing wheels. I don't know which ones though but they're 15s.

4.88's will put you pretty close to stock. Anything less really wont help much. I have 33's and I would hate to run 35's on 4.10's even with me having the 4.0. I really want 4.56's.
