Pics of bl on 265/75 tires

Please, if anyone has this combination post some pics. I really want to do the bl with my new tires, but people are saying not to without bigger tires. I really dont think it will look bad at all. As long As I use gap guards.
Here's my new tires:

Looks like the same size tire gap I had befor I body lifted mine, your truck will look fine with those tires, I hate the cramped look anyways.

I personally think it looks better then cramming to big of a tire on.

New tires look good. What's with the mismatched rims?

A BL will look just fine on it. Like Cole said, looks better than having huge tires stuffed with no lift.

alright sweet! The black rim is what the spare was on, I needed tires because I got a flat and rode on it too long it bent the rim, I'm going to pick up a matching rim this weekend.
What happens to the tow hooks in the front? I as just thinking about that? Do I have to tke them off? Because I want to keep the valence but a lot of pics i see with bl just took off the valence.

I think you just need to trim the valance to put them back on, no biggie.

Here's my new tires:

I have 265/75 and I am getting my bl tomorrow. So if you wait 2 days you will see what it looks like on a 4wd truck. Jack the bed up and see what it looks like. Meatier tires will also make it look better.


I might put a smaller block in the back and uncrank the bars if i have to.
