cant decide what size

Ok, Im trying to decide on what size tire to get. I have already done a 2" procomp AAL and maxxed my t-bars and running 285/70-17's. In spring Im plannin on doing a body lift with 18s. My delema is on what size tires to run. I love the 18s and 35s combo but what are some drawbacks to this? I already talked to Shane and Andy (thanx again guys) but Im still curious.

Slower, worse mileage, more wear on stuff. Thats about it though. You looking to regear or just leave it how it is now?

Im leanin more towards the 325s cuz its a touch bigger than the 33s and the metric is cheaper sometimes, I do eventually wanna do an RCD or just a coilover swap.

I don't like the looks of 18s I'm more about function than looks.... But that's just me.
