4.56 is gonna be the response you get from most...i personally would go deeper, and DD on SMALL 36s on 5.13s and LOVE it.

4.88s cause they are wider than most 35s and prolly weight quite a bit more imo

messing with anything under 4.56s would just be a waste of time and money...also, what do you mean by 50% road? honestly 50% offroad/onroad or what...anything between 4.56 and 5.13 would be fine, and the more actual offraod it is, the more inclined you should be to go deeper.

I have 37;s that measure 35.5 with wear on them, and i spin at 2116 rpms at 70 MPH with 4.56's. It's nice for freeway driving, but times i wish i had 4.88 for 37 ish tires..

if you don't daily drive it then I would definately go with 4.88's. I had 35's with 4.88's and didn't really like the rpms, but i think it was just due to the heavy ass truck still being slow.
