Size issue...

My truck is finally getting lifted but I'm not sure what size tire to get. 33s or 35s. The lift is gonna consist of 3in spindles and 3in coils for the front with UCAs and shocks. For the rear it's gonna be a 3in block and 2in shackle with shocks. And, if needed, a cam and bolt kit. My dilemma is: I don't want to over-stuff the wheelwells or under-stuff them either with too big or too small a tire. I want that just right look. I know that some ppl have different opinions on what "that just right look" is but I'm hoping to get clarity with your responses and maybe a few pictures of what your truck looks like with a 6in front \ 5in rear lift and 33s or 35s.

If I'm posting this in the wrong area please excuse my ignorance.

Also, my truck is a 2006 XLT 2WD. If I go with 35s will I kill my 7.5 rear?

and if your not sure, split it and get 34s

What I'd like to do is throw my mom's 93 Explorer 8.8 under the rear of my 2WD and equip it with the proper gears and locker but it's her primary vech. at the moment so that idea is on hold.

35s would be great though.
