New tires and LED bar installed (pics)

I put new 32" BFG All-terrain T/A's on my ranger, cranked the t-bars so it leveled the truck out some. Also installed a Fire and Ice LED bar (lights up when u hit breaks, either half lights flashes depending on what turn signal u use, also when I put the truck in reverse it lights up white):

Truck looks good, but for some reason those tires seem smaller than 32's.

I have 32x11.50x15 = 292/74/15
You have 31.6x10.4x16 = 265/75/16

on BFG's website it says 31.7x10.6x16, but close enough....
so what do I call them? 31.7's, 32's, or just 265's?

I'd just call them sexy lol, those look great on your truck. I have one of those Fire and Ice bars as well, thats probably the most commented thing I get on my truck. Makes it so much easier for people to follow you at night too.

no I haven't, I just had one about a thousand miles ago. But you know it might be a good idea. I'm not sure, any recommendations?

The places around here will check it for free, it might be cause I've done business with them in the past. Go back to the shop that you got it aligned from before and tell them its been riding kind of rough and see if they'll check it again for free.
