Looks good, are those tires 35x12.50's or the 11.50's ? Im planning on the same, didnt know if the stock wheels would work w stock baxkapacing and 12.50 width tires
I put the 35x11.50 on stock rims. By spec the 12.5 width is too wide for a 7.5” rim. A lot of people do it anyway. You just need to find an installer that will do it. I like my Mojave rims so stayed safe and in spec with the 11.5” width.

Good to read a "real-world" account of this. On paper, a 315/70/17 (about 34.5 size tire) and a factory 255/75/17 (about a 32 size tire) is around a 7 to 8% increase in diameter. It's strange just how much this impacts driveability. Then again, the width is quite a bit wider (like a 24% increase) so you do lose some power there. And of course, there are weight differences too. So added up, I guess this all makes sense. Cool write-up, thanks for posting.

great to hear that your 6pd-4.56-35" combination is working well.
BTW- hand calc for those interested:
=(Tire revs/mi)...from vendor/mfg spec sheet
X(rear axle ratio)
X(trans top ratio)
X(highway speed)
/(60min/hour)
with numbers it looks like:
(600)X(4.56)X(0.72)X(75)/(60)=2462.
