    20's and 22's look good with 35's in my opinion... I wouldnt go smaller then 17's though... With bigger tires and/pr wheels you have a heavier rotating mass, so you might want to look into a brake upgrade as well... Just my $0.02

    yeah the trail grapplers rock so far. they are the quietest m/t you can buy, and they do awesome offroad. its the best tire out there for my purposes (daily driver and trail truck). they also do great in the rain and look killer
