Re: Gonna get some 35s

wont take much power...the biggest issue is the wieght that the larger tires add which could hurt your fuel milage

Re: Gonna get some 35s

You will lose about 1 mpg and does not hurt power to anything noticeable. A number of people can get 20 mpg if they are light on the go pedal.

Re: Gonna get some 35s

You will see 1-2mpg decrease, I notice no power difference but the little tires are easy to light up, as the big ones are not

AND YOU THOUGHT CARTER SUCKED

I don't think that is going to stop you from getting some new tires....By the way what kind of tire are you looking at?

Leveling kit and some slight trimming and they will fit.
