Default Whats too much for daily driver?

I have a 2011 1500 2wd with 2" front level, 3.93 gears. Im thinking of putting on 35" tires (MT ATZP3) on 20" rims with -12 offset. It is my only vehicle and a daily driver. What do you guys think? Should I do 33's instead?

Thanks,
Alex

I have a 2016 4wd with 35s on 20x10 wheels and a 6 inch lift with 8 speed trans and 3.92s. My MPG went from about 16 to just under 13. I'm a little quick off the starting line though.

The simple fact of modding: The further away from stock you go, the weaker and more trouble prone she gets.
As boring as OEM is, it seems to outlast aftermarket stuff ten to one.

However...
Considering these trucks look good on big rubber,
And you are aware of the loss in fuel mileage,
And your common sense tells you that if you go to bigger diameter tires your putting more stress on pretty much everything,
. . .Then I would say you should go with the biggest rubber you can stuff under that truck.
I ran 33's on my little Jeep TJ for years with no problems so I would say that 35's for a full size pickup like yours should be fine.



Please be sure to post Before & After pictures! ! !
I know the upgrade is expensive as hell but she'll look great when your done.
Regards,

You gotta pay to play! Mines a weekend warrior so I don't mind the 35s but I lost about 3.5 mpgs which adds up if you drive every day a decent distance.

33's do look a bit small on a level. Mine is also an everyday. But I don't think any of us bought Hemi's for the mileage.

I say do what makes you feel good, it is your dime. But, why would you pay to mod it and then pay more to operate it every day. Doesn't make any sense to me. But as I stated earlier, it's your dime.
Modern pickup trucks are very good looking vehicles and IMO, very few that are modded look better than original.
