I know, and im sorry

I know this has prob. been asked a billion and one times but Im trying to decide which tire/wheel setup to go with on my truck. I have decided I dont want a body lift so I have it down to either 265/75s on my stock rims or going with 32x11.50 on new 15 inch rims. Which should I do? I mean I like the look of the stock rims but I want something different. But at the same time am I gonna notice a big power loss if I go from 255/70-16s to 265/75-16s or to 32x1150-15s? I just have spent so much money on tryin to make my truck quick that I hate to slow it right back down.
What the heck should I do????

I agree with what he ^^^ said but at the same time if your going for a beefy look its a give and take thing. You cant have huge tires and speed but you can find a middle ground and your truck will look sweet so if that helps at all.... I dunno just my thought

do you want the tires to look wider and stick out? if so go with the 15" wheels...

the 15" wheels would look better with a 32 but the 16" still look good. depends on what you want.

Ya see thats the look I really want is a little wider....I hate the look of such a skinny tire/rim setup. Heck I would love to throw a super lift on there with some 33s or somethin but my dern truck would be a terd...
But ya def thats whats makin me want 32s because of that wider look. Would I really notice the extra tire under there?

If what your looking for is more a wider tire than a bigger overall tire, 31x10.5x15's are a choice as well. I went from stock to this size and have noticed no difference in power and gas mileage, even tho mine are M/T's.
