Only when turning sharply though correct?
Also when off roading in the rear fenders, some people have to cut their rear fenders, some don’t. This is just stuff I researched, I haven’t actually driven on 35s. I’m going to put 4 inches with 33s. Look at project pikachu. He runs a HFS 4 inch lift with 33 inch BFG AT tires. Looks fantastic

Are you still on factory rear wheel wells and engine?

35's will not clear the rear wheel wells if they are not trimmed, and a stock engine will need to be regeared.

I tried searching 33x12.5 as well as 35x12.5. And the 35’s just look so much beefier lol

I ran a stock 2F with 4.11 on 35s for years with no problems. Was fine off road and moved along straight and even at 67mph on the freeway.
Your results may vary.

I'm sure it would work better closer to sea level than where I'm at. the 2F becomes anemic at my elevation. I completely agree that YRMV.

Did you have to trim your wheel well to fit 35’s?
