33's or 35's.....

ok well i just got rid of the 33's and upgraded to 35's, well it wasnt really an upgrade cause they tires i put on suck but im going to be buying some new ones real soon but idk if i want to stay with the 35's or go back to 33's, i love to looks of the 35's, havent had a huge problem with the gears or engine so thats not a factor, but for the driving that i do idk whether it will hurt or help me, mostly road with the occasionla beach or mud....... 33's have always been good to me, not to mention the decent gas mileage i got, (note-35's havent brought it down to much at all.....) i just cant decide, im more than likely going with bfg a/t's at the moment but my mind changes like the wind........just looking to see what others think, heres some pics to help along with the process

33's...

Just my opinion but I like the 33's better. Better clearance and gas mileage to boot.

well clearence issues arent a problem at all, gas mileage is up in the air at the moment cause i dont ahve a tank on just the hwy, seems like the truck runs at alot lower rpm than it used too, used to get around 18-20 mpg on the hwy and with the way its running it seems like it may stay around there......35's are as big as i would ever want to go......i can def crank the front end up more but it starts to creak when i turn the bolts, im assuming that its just the bars being under more stress, anyone else hear these noises when they crank them????? if its not bad ill see what i can do when i change the oil next week.......

dont mean to bring up an old topic but im really losing sleep over this, im not lying, its killing me, i really dont like the body lift, i mean i love the idea of having bigger tires but i just dont like the looks of it, if i take it off i could clear 33's all day, im considering taking it off and getting another set of 33's rather than upgrading my current 35's, i think i just need more opinions cause i cant do it myself, i like the big tires but im worried about breaking and wearing stuff out, the more i look at it, 33's didnt look to horrible, but than 35's clear up the empty space......opinions please.......
