I got a set of method grids on order. +18 offset. And I'm going to order some pro comp pro runner shocks to lift the front 3", probably lift the rear 1" with a block. Which tire would rub less? The 295/65 is slightly taller, while the 35x12.5 is slightly wider. Not too familiar with the normal rub spots. Tires gonna be Nitto Ridge Grappler. Thanks guys.

Is it the height or the width that causes the majority of the rubbing? Trying to avoid the body mount chop if possible. Fender liners and mud guards not a problem if modified. I can also go with the 35x11.5r20. It's 1/3" thinner than the 295/65. Would that be a better fit?

I want to say it is typically the width or offset that causes more rub issues on the body mount.

I've read many posts here of members that have avoided doing the chop with 35s. That's all. If I have to do so, then I will. I'm just wondering if it's the height (overall diameter) or the width that's the culprit.

I don't think it will matter much between 295/65 and 35x12.5. I ran 315/70r17 with Icon six speed wheels which were designed with the backspacing and offset to clear those size tires with no chop. When I switched to 17" methods with 0 offset, those tires rubbed super hard and I did a CMC. I've yet to meet anyone running the methods with +18 offset running 35ish wheels that hasn't needed a chop. IMO just do and have plenty of clearance and not worry about it.
