So maybe ill try and find the cranks with the toyo at2 in a 35 like you guys ate suggesting....just don't want to loose the performance I feel my truck had over most other trucks I've come in contact with. I'll look around on eBay for a good combo like yours, where did u purchase if you don't mind me asking...

Sorry for the late response, I was working out in the field all last week and thanks for the compliments, one thing I can tell you about the cranks is that the pictures on the internet donít do it justice, not even close! They are bada$$ looking in person and I get compliments all the time.

The whole wheel and tire debate is nothing but internal turmoil until you finally pull the triggerÖ Thatís why I love this forum you can really research your options and people are willing to help and encourage when the can.

I purchased everything from a local dealer. The rough country kit cost me $550 installed with an alignment which isnít to terrible (welcome to Canada where everything is double the price) but I digress lol. If you go with 35Ē tires your truck wonít feel as ďsportyĒ but it definitely looks and feels more like a truck. A lot of people also overlook the fact that when you go from the stock 33ís to 35ís you gain in inch of lift simply by installing a larger tire. So it really comes down to how you use your truckÖ If you like to take corners fast and bark the tires definitely donít get a 35Ē AT tire. If you will use your truck like I do (hunting, fishing, mountain biking, getting firewood ect) driving down fire roads Iíd definitely say get 35ís, you have a bit more tire to cushion your rim and an extra inch of clearance.

But you also have to take into account the rim you want to go with and thatís when offset becomes important. If you donít have the correct offset you will have rubbing and nobody likes that. 0 degrees is optimal for our trucks since you wonít have to do any trimming and you can easily clear a 35x12.5 tire with the tires sticking out just about an inch. -12 and -24 are also very popular offsets since they push the wheels out a little further to give you a really wide stance which a lot of people like. You can also use a wheel spacer if you fall in love with a rim but it doesnít have the offset you need. I personally donít like spacers since they stress your studs but many members are using them with zero issues.

So itís up to you bud, Iím of course a fan of 35Ēs and a 0 offset because that what Iím running and itís the look that I like.

If you are looking to purchase online I would HIGHLY recommend Discount Auto Performance. They have great prices and are huge supporters of this form and post tons of really helpful information on this forum. They can be reached at:

They can also answer any questions you have about fitment.

Hope this helped!
