not really diggin it, tires are way too small imo, too much gap in the wheel well. But there is potential.

The wheels look great on the truck man! I prob. would have left the t-bars where they were until you got bigger tires. Throw some new tires up there man it will look even better. I love the wheels though.

If you're going to run 31's don't do a body lift. My suggestion would be to save up your money then get some 33x12.50" BFG KM2's. Those would look amazing on those wheels. Looks good so far though.

Thanks, I appreciate your comments. Your right tho i probably should get some 33's. I was either considering 33's or 31's . But yeah i need to save up money

The 31's would look great if you don't do a body lift. But once you get those extra inches with the body lift you might as well spend the extra bucks on the bigger tires.

Yeah i understand that was my biggest fear was riding on these small wheels for the next month or two until i can save up enough money for some new ones. But the tires i currently run have more then enough tread to last me another 5 months so i just feel its wasteful to get rid of tires like that.

Those tires remind me of the time I slapped some older 14" Ranger rims on mine for fun.
You need larger meats!!

OP- I am running Sully's old wheels.

My lift would be different from yours but you get the idea what 33's would look with a lift. Just check out my sig to see what I have done.

You're not going to get any 33" tires to fit on a car man. They will fit on your truck with a 3" BL, torsion bar crank and probably an AAL or shackle... Might have to run a 3in spindle if you're 2wd. It all depends on the offset of your wheels. They look pretty far out, so you should be ok.
