what size rim do you want to put it on? A 35" tire won't sit at 35 inches once its mounted and has the weight of the truck on it.

Are you already running 33s? Knowing a little more about your truck would help. Why don't you want to run a 35" tire? The best thing you could do is look at the specs of the tires your interested in and see which one of those in a 35x12.5x15 or 315/75R16 is closest to 34 in actual overall diameter.

Eric-They make 285s and 305s I know, but that's the width of the tire. What pooleo suggested might be the best option. haha

yeh...technically that number has a little to do with height but generally a 285 and a 305 are 33s.

First number is section width is millimeters(305mm is around 12"), next number is sidewall height as a ratio (sidewall height is 75% of 305mm), third number is rim diameter(16).

75% of 12 is ~9, 9+9+16 is 34. So according to the math a 305/75R16 should be a 34x12x16. Only problem is a 305/75R16 doesn't exist that I know of.

i know spec charts help with the overall diameter, im too lazy to lookup a bunch of tires, thats why i asked.
and bc 35s, i would haver to change the gears. id be able to get away with something a little smaller but bigger then 33s. you dont really need to no anything about my truck, all im looking for is sizes of tires...

Is an inch really going to make that big of a difference with gears? I was figuring you didn't want 35s because they wouldn't fit...which is where knowing something about your truck would have helped. And knowing what gears you have would help too. The difference in circumference between a 33 and 35 isn't enough to need to regear unless your still running stock 3.73s in which case you should have regeared for the 33s.

Stop being lazy and search through the all terrain and off road tires on tirerack.com, it won't take that long to find something that works. I'd start with some of the not so big brands like Dunlops mud rover, then look at BFGs(they make a 255/85/16 thats just over 33"), DCs, and Goodyears.
