    OK

    so the lift goes on in just over two weeks ( 6" fabtech, Alcan leafs, Icons)

    and I still need to order tires ( 17" XD addicts for them to go on)

    I have the option to get a set of 33 12.50 Grabbers ( the new ones)

    or I can put at set of AT2s on it.

    If I put the AT2s I was going to put 35s on it

    I think a nice aggressive 33 looks nice with the 6", but I am afraid that the AT will look too small which is why I was going to bump that one up to 35 ( being an AT it shouldnt be too catchy if it rubs a little)

    What do you guys think? I spend most of my off road time on the beach, but I would like to get into some of the other VA trails in time.

    There are other option I know, but I get a killer deal on these two.

    Thanks in advance for any input, I am torn here.

    I thought the AT2s were the Grabbers??? i have a set on my truck and they were called General Grabbers AT2... is the mud tire called just plain grabber?

    Anyways...unless you re-gear you will not be happy with the performance of your vehicle and its power.just stick with 33's unless your going to re-gear within the early life of your tires. just my 2 cents. you can check out my build to see what it looks like with 33's

    he has a supercharger so for now I dont think the power loss will be too bad, I would wait for like another month and dont buy the new grabbers from 4wp and get 35s. I know you get a discount but still its better that you pay a lil more and get what you want.

    I just found a set of worn out 35s in town for 50 bucks. I might throw those on there until I can get the grabbers. plus I can see how I like the performance of 35s I just dont like the idea of multiple mountings and jacking up a rim

    damn this is a hard decision. I like both tires :)

    I like the AT2 from a cosmetic standpoint. But if I were you I would go 35's. It would set your rig apart from all the 3" guys.
