Still gonna say it again...That truck is sexy as hell!

I think he/Froylan/760 also means why are you running 35's rear and 45's front. Being that same width tires are 2 different sidewall heights. In which case it would make the fronts taller if they were the same width wheel/tire combo.

As Dustin/TrndAssassin is saying they are staggered wheels. Meaning the front's are thinner rims then the rear. So since a sidewall is the percentage of the width of the tire, once you get to a certain wider width the tires look the same height as the front do with the higher series tire. If he was to put 45 series tires on both front and rear wheels then the rear wheels would look taller/bigger being they are much wider. Meaning the sidewall would be much taller. Having more of a raked look. Does this make scene?
