Thanks to all of the advice from the knowledgable people on this forum I was able to move into some 35's...which I have been wanting to do for a while. Really happy with them so far and they look amazing on my 2010 DC.

LUV the tires! Relatively quiet for ATs. Grip the pavement nicely and Handled very well on some desert back roads near my house. No serious off roading yet :)

Because I moved up to 35's I do notice (what seems to me) a slight power drop. Nothing major but it seems a little more sluggish than when I was on 30's. These tires are considerably heavier ( almost twice as much!) as my non E-rated, Non-LT tires. But I have been reading here on the forums that it's because I need to regear into 4.56 or 4.88 in order to get that HP back...as well as some MPG. Still a noob at this stuff so any advice would be appreciated.

All in all I am definitely glad I upgraded to 35's. They look awesome on the Tundra :)

Wheels are +30 offset. 9x20. Really happy with how they look.

I noticed the same power drop when I installed mine. Did some research and did the following and it is way better.
Put two washers under the rear of the VSC module under the center console to compensate for the level kit.
Then ran Zero Calibration
Then installed the Hypertech module to calibrate the speedo.

Might be in my head but seems just as good as stock and don't need to regear.

you really dont need to regear with 35s, if you have stock 4.30s. If you install the hypertech it will return you to the stock feeling of power and shifting. Plus your speedo and odo will be on. Its a 30 minute, $175 investment vs about $1500 for re-gearing. Not worth it to me.

Well after some hemming and hawing on wheather or not to pull the trigger on a re-gear or not I decided to go ahead and do it. It's 2 weeks now and I have to say I am REALLY glad that I did. I noticed that my "power" cam back and I have a 5th gear again! Seriousely though it was definately an improvement in performance and I think I gained some mpg too.
