Really up to how much you want to spend and what look you're going for. Either will fit, depending on wheel offset you may need to add a 1/4 spacer to accommodate for the 35's. I've seen plenty of people clear a 35" tire with nothing but a 2.5" leveling kit

Check your offset for whatever wheel you plan to use. I could have gotten away with 35's had mine not been a +1 mm offset. So I dropped down to 33's.

I have been leaning more towards the 35's. does offset really matter on rims? I have always concentrated more on back spacing rather than offset. Rims I have in mind have a 5 inch backspace and a +15mm offset.

I think it does but backspacing is important too. Mine have a 5 inch backspace.

Feel free to correct me if Im wrong but the way I understand it is that offset and backspacing are really just 2 different ways to measure the same thing.

Offset- measured from center of wheel out (positive) or in (negative)

Backspacing-measured from the back of the wheel in.
