Get the 4.53 over the 5.71 - the 5.71 won't stick out as much, but the tires might rub the control arms at full turn. What tires are you going to run?

Well I want something agressive looking that wears well. But dnt everyone. Umm I see goodyear has sum wranger rover m/t maxx but they dnt hav any 35x12.50s just 325/70r18s. Which I think are eqivalent almost. Idk they look nice and there cheap so maybe them. How about them new nitto trail grapplers? What do u reccomend?

I'm wondering what tire you want because the sidewalls on the tires makes a lot of difference on rubbing issues or not. Tires with big side biters (Nitto Mud Grapplers, Toyo M/T, etc) rub easier on the control arms even though they're the same tread width as others.

Those 325/70r18 measure out to 35.9 12.8, which would be considered a 36 x 13 for the 18" rim. Those are a little bigger than most 35's.

I've heard good reports from the Nitto Trail Grapplers, my dad has over 50k on his half ton with them, still has plenty of tread. I can't speak from experience, but others should chime in.

I'm having good luck with my Mickey Thompson MTZ mud tires. I've got 37,400 miles on them and still have some tread. I'm kinda surprised to be honest. I've been rotating them about every 3k though.

Less back spacing ='s more tire sticking out. 5.71 is to much back spacing IMO and it will not look as good IMO.

Oh, woops, trail grapplers, I was thinking terra grapplers. I bet no one will have much high mileage data on the new tires. The terra grapplers are decent A/T tires, but they're not aggressive at all, IMO. Not even 15k out of the stock tires? I think less burnouts would help.
