    My 33s on my K10 are going bald and I'm being shopping for new tires and I've been thinking about getting 35s instead. I recently had the truck regeared to 4.10 from 3.08, so I have plently of rpms now with the 33s. And if I go with 35s, I was thinking about putting a 3" body lift in it. 4" and 33s just doesn't seem like a lifted truck with all the new stock pickups are taller. I'm thinking of going with a 6lug 14sf down the road to replace my 10bolt, I've heard they are a little sturder. I've been leaning away from swapping in 8 lug 3/4ton, I like the option of being able to run my factory rally wheels.

    Recommendations for light offroading aggressive looking daily driver 35s? I have been running Wild Country RVT Tracs for the last few years. I liked them, but they wore out too fast and I'm looking for something cheaper than Les Schwab.

    I've heard for a swamper they ride nice, but what about mileage and price... damn. I was planning on getting 33x13.50x15s Toyo MTs for $946 out the door at Schwab tell I started thinking about 35s and I'd want to go cheaper

    Why don't you just be patient and wait for Interco Blems to pop up on their site?

    I have a buddy who runs Trxus MT's on his Stupid Duty DD and he loves them. They wear nicely, ride nicely and have performed very well for a dd tire when he takes it to Pismo.
