Its going to look silly if its suppost to look lifted or 'offroad' and you have 22" rims on that kind of sidewall. I would say yes to them if they were 40" tires or bigger. I would think something like 18" is the biggest you are going to want to run man.

i wasnt saying those exact tires are what i want i want the nitto terra grapplers or the new dune grapplers...more of like a 36 or 38" tire 40"s would be to big for my truck.......18"s is the biggest you say...iam running 20"s now with out any problems....iam just wanting more bling......lol

I think that's what Scotty said... no. He doesn't like em. Call me crazy, but I think it was a pretty straightforward answer?

I don't particularly like them either. First off, I think you'd want a more aggressive tread pattern than that. Secondly, I think the wheels are too big and the tires are too small for the look you are wanting.

like i said i was looking for a opinion (with a helpful response) not just a flat out no! anyways...i saw a f250 with 22" looked like offroad style wheels but they were chrome.....that is the look iam wanting....i have a lift iam getting in january and i wanted something bigger.....

if you still plan to do a SAS, is your rims going to have the right lug pattern for the new axles?

I KNOW you are running 20" rims, i have seen the threads. I was suggesting an 18" rim would more in proportion for what you have now. The 'bling factor' depends on what the rim looks like too. If you want such big rims why dont you lower it down and run lo pro's again? IMO it would look better.
