    I will be going with 35's as soon as I can afford to do so. I havent decided if I will level it or not. Probably not going to lift it. The stock tires are way too small for the truck.

    Granted my truck is old, but on my 08 3500 I am running 35" rubber. Fills the wheel wells out nicely.

    I run 35 in the summer. B careful with your weight ratings. I had to hunt around a bit but mine r good for 3650# per tire. You can degrade your weight rating quite a bit if you don't watch. Not a big deal in you just drive it to the mall!

    I am curious too about your mileage going down. Planning to do a programmer too, but no deletes until I either start having major issues or warranty is done.

    I know with my dodge 2006 3500 srw, i moved just from 265/70/17 to 285/70/17 and i can safely say I lost 1.5mpg. Truck is all stock but for a cold air intake.
    Old grey still gets 20-22mpg hand calculated with the 285's.
    New grey (dodge 2011 3500 srw) has all deletes done, running stock 265's and WANT to move up to the 285's just to fill the wheel wells. But already hard pressed to get 18mpg.
