    So i am in the market for new rubber and I'm kinda pondering i have a 2500 with the levelling kit and i run 285 70 17 right now. but i was thinking of doing a 35x12.5x17 or a 33x13.5x17 and i just don't know what way to go any suggestions ?

    13.5

    There's like an 11lb per wheel difference between the 13.5 and 12.5 I'm looking at now.

    Nothin crazy but weight is weight.
