Have you considered the cost of a regear to go along with the 35's? You will probably also want a programmer/tuner to adjust the tire size in the computer (and the gear ratio, if you end up spending...

That's what I was told as well. Two local locksmiths said I need to open the case, remove everything, and hand them just the blank key. Going to try Home Depot and Lowes and whoever else first.
