hey buddy, looks good! I guess living in Canada makes it tough/boring to ride street ALL the time, there's more options to ride off-road or at least that's what I thought when I purchased my tires. Can't wait to see the new skids!

Hell yeah! I say keep the rims instead of selling them, lose lowpros, add meat, and it'll be awesome.

I like the look of the lifted truck with the lowered tires. Best of both worlds.

Yea.... your wheels are fine at 8.5, just hurry up and get some 33s put on so it wont looks as funny.

looks good. better with the new tires. 8.5" with a 12.5" if fine. you could fit a 12.50" on a 7" if you had to.

You know I think those wheels with some beefy tires would look badass on your truck. I normally dont like big wheels on an lifted truck, but sometimes opinions can change.
