last minute help needed

im ordering my wheels and tires on this saturday (mar. 8th). ill be running a 16" wheel, but i keep bouncing back and forth with the size tire.
i want it to look awesome but i dont want to be sorry for doing it. its between a 33" and a 35" tire. i dont know what i should do

if i go 33, i feel like all this time and money for a 'little lift'

if i go 35s, it will looks soo much better but the gas and power will be a little less lose. plus ill have to order a BL too.

i need everyones opinion and input. should i go with the 33s and play it safe, or go with the 35s and ordered a BL?

I'd just go with 32s, if you get 33s go ahead and get your body lift. Don't do 35s with just a body lift.

if you have spindles go and head and get the 33x12.50x15's but if you have money to spend get the 35's and body lift

Just go with 33s, it'll look good without having to regear and still lift.

Damn you Stone, beat me again
