Need Help with Wheel/Tire Combo

Alright folks I have finally decided to do it..Im goin with the Superlift. Now the fun decision is here for tires and rims. I am thinking either 33x12.50-17s or 305/70-16s. Most everybody has said that the 17s will look to big but I personally dont think so..but comments are welcome.
Im thinking either Pro Comp M/Ts, BFG M/Ts, or maybe even the Mickey Thompson MTZs.
As far as rims Im thinkin Moto Metals, or Pro Comp 6001s..I wanna go chrome.
What do ya'll think would look best? I am gonna put pictures up here of these rims and tires.
Any other ideas are great. Thanks for the help.

Okay...here are the 33x12.50-17s:

go with 17s and the mickey thompson tires they will look sick DONT get the procomp mts mine suck they are out of round, they wear horribly, and they get noisier as they wear but that might be true with all mts
you should photoshop the rims you want with the tires and post it up

Head to downloads.com and search up "paint.net" its what I use, just as good, but 100% free and an awful lot smaller of a download.. I can send up a sample of what I can do with it when i get back home.. I'm at work right now =)

I liked your truck how it was, but MTZ's and the second rim I think would look great.

I think those MTZ's are perfect, the hole spacing is great for yoru vehicle, and the chrome looks good with that blue paint you got there.
