    I honestly think 35's would still be to small hell I'm getting 33-12.X15"and I will only have a 3" lift. I say go big you already have a HUGE lift you might as well go with 38's or even 40's But then your going to run into the issue of turning those bag ass tires.

    The previous owner put alot of money into this thing,he had 42 swampers on it.Someone pulled out in front of him and he pretty much rolled over her car,then it rolled onto it's side.It has been at the body shop for 3 years,he could never pay for the repairs,so he decided to surrender his title to the body shop owner,and this is where i came in.I had my eye on it the entire time it was there.If i was the only driver i would go as big as i could,but keep in mind this is for a 17 year old .

    x2. Best/probably easiest way to drop it down a little.

    My thought exactly and I assume he doesn't want it to happen with his son in it.
