I believe he has an Edge. Personally, I would go with 33's, assuming you have and Edge model. Anything bigger than that is too big I think.

So is it the superlift or rcd? I would go with 33s with either or I'm just curious on which lift it is.

RCD calls it a 5", they dropped the other .5" a while ago. You'd probably be fine with 34s. If you actually wheel it I would go with 33s for flex room

Stick with 33's. 35's would just look way too stuffed.
