Looks decent needs bigger tires thats for sure.. and run 305x75x16 not 285x75x16 <--- are not that big at all and you can fit them stock...

Looks good. Thanks for the inspiration.

How tall (in inches please) are those tires that are on now? I have 31s and want to do a 3" BL, but I was going to wait until I need to get 33s, but if the 31s wil be ok looking I will do it sooner

The wheels are MB Motoring Blitz 16x8 with 265/75R16 on them. I like the 305 but the 285 will do a little better on mpg wont they. I dont want to kill my mpg.

Looking good, just get a tuner with the 305s and mileage will be back to stock.

I really like the 06 Chrome grill. Do you think it would look good on my truck. I think it makes the truck look more aggressive.

no... sorry about that too I ment 305x70x16 not 75....

305x70x16 are 33x12.2x16

285x75x16 are 33x11.3x16

your thinking of 315x75x16 which are 34.6x12.3x16

Looks good, but as said Bigger tires are a must & keep the outside of the tires black, the white letters next to the wheels looks to busy and takes away from the wheels.
