Need help pick my tires and wheels out

I dont know what wheel size to get? Should I be getting 15x8? Will the tires be too big? will the mud terrain be fine for my dd? What kind of tires and wheels you guys think I should get? I be having my 4inch lift on too when I get these.

No don't do that. 33x12.5 is a must.

I run 33x12.5s on a Superlift and the only thing I occasionally rubbed was the front mud flaps, so I just took them off. Everything else is fine. Also, I used to have classic lock II's on my truck and they looked awesome.

Classic Locks with blue trim rings would look awesome on that truck.

I'd go with A/Ts over the KM2s if you do a lot of highway driving. Don't get me wrong--I'd love some KM2s, but I drive 70 miles a day and the moise from such an aggressive tread would drive me nuts.

Another vote for 33x12.50s on 15x10" wheels. I've got the same combo and love it!

I vote 15x8 classic locks, blue rings and 33x12.5s if you want to go 15s

the pros to the 8in wide rims is if you air down in the snow and on the trail you have more force on the bead from the tire so its less likely to blow a bead. and they may still fit up in the fenders that way you dont end up throwing flares like Shane was last outing.

These might be a good option if the tread is in good shape. The SXTs are a light mud terrain but more aggressive then the BFG ats
