These are 285's on stock wheels with body lift. Personally the 285's fill out pretty well.. IMO 265's would be too small. But thats my $.02

Hope this helps!!

why not 1", 31's and a torsion bar twist? 3" and 265s (31) would look off proportion.

Honestly, if you want 33's get a 3" body lift. I am taking my 1" lift off here before spring to put a 3" on my truck. once you do a little lift, its only a matter of time till you want more. the 1" lift is fine if you just want to run 31's with a meaner stance, but if you want a bigger overall truck you wont be satisfied. Just my double penny.

i like the way mine sits right now and im runnin 33's with 1" BL, shackles, and cranked t-bars. i think it looks a lot cleaner than a 3" BL plus the shackles helped im prove ride quality and flex.
