    I'm buying tires any day now and keep bouncing back and forth between 32's (265/75/16) and 33's (285/75/16). Please vote above.

    I know the pros and cons of each. You do not need to explain which rubs, needs trimming, needs a lift, gets better mileage, etc. Again, I already know.:)

    Reasons I want 33's:
    -I off road a fair amount
    -Looks good
    -Have lift, have Spidertrax, and getting UCA's either way
    -Compensating for a small weenie:eek:

    Reasons I want 32's:
    -Daily driver
    -Road tripper
    -Better mileage
    -Less stress on drivetrain

    I have 33's, and will probably get 32's next round. The only things that keeps me from changing is how awesome it looks. Forget about your midrange power and gas mileage. POOF, gone.

    Not to mention it would be nice to crank my coilovers back down to about 2" of lift from 3". :cool:

    I'm afraid the same would happen to me. Every time I make the wise, practical decision, there is always a piece of me that regrets it.
    Technically, 285/75/16's are 32.5's, as are most 33's.

    Regarding the 17" size you mentioned, I can't do it. I have 16" rims, don't want to buy new rims, and even if I did buy new rims, I would stick with 16". 17" rim/tires are more expensive but less effective off road. Based on my needs, I just can't justify that decision.

    Me too...haha, I have the 285's and they're great, I never noticed any loss of power and my fuel mileage didn't suffer too bad. But IMHO, look into the 295's something like 33.5" and they look super sexy. I know they'll require a little more trimming but damn, they stuff that wheel well nice. :cool:

    I went with 32's and am totally happy.

    Good mileage, I drive alot. Good midrange power, I pull a boat in the summer. No need to compensate ;)

    33's prolly look "cooler" but my 32's and locker will get me where I need to go.
