which ones 33x12.5x15 or 35x12.5x15?

Im looking into getting tires for my classic i have a 3 inch coil lift and want to know which tires will be better or if even 35s will fit or which tires will be the best for me? i do drive the truck to work and back everyday which is 15 miles there and do drive it on the road. i know some people do fir 35s with there classics but i dont know if they change the driveshafts and stuff. everything mechanical is the same meaning gears and so on. i do go off roading alot also which is why i was thinking 35s for more clearence. so what tires should i go with with me also driving it everyday the 33s or the 35s without putting alot of strain on the driveshafts.
thank you

Don't put 35s on your truck unless you're ready to do something like this...



Or you'll end up with this...

I would go with the 33's just keep in mind your already slow rover will be slower. Fuel mileage will also suffer unless you re-gear the diffs.

if you're gonna put bigger tires and wheels might as well start saving up to do gears.

I put these on my 89:Crawlers from Treadwright 235/85r16 (33").
https://www.treadwright.com/p-28-235...ler-m-t-e.aspx

About $500 shipped to my door. I think they look awesome on the truck, super skinny, really agressive and pretty tall.
