Need a Recommendation

alright fellas....I was talkiing to the wife via IM...i have 32x11.5 tires with 15x9 (she measured said 16) so thats my guess. Like ive said in other posts i havent really gotten to explore this truck. Would you think thats it been lifted? My wife didnt really like how it handled in the rain and whatnot so i am getting the green light to buy....i found some 17x9 black rims...what would be the correct size to put tires? What do you guys recommend, stay with what ive got? something to ease her mind..you know women associate their driving with how you would drive....Here is the best pic I have to show you truck, i can get her to take a pic of something else to help you guys judge if its been lifted...I dont know anything about BL..thanks guys

Keep those tires until they wear down. Then get something you like. Gives you time to save up.

Keep Those wheels, they look good! When those tires wear out go bigger and lift it.

those rims wont work at all. there tuner rims the BS is all wrong. and are you planning on lifting this truck or not? find different rims. just FYI your gonna pay out the *** for tires for 17 offroad there is a reason i sayed 15's before

ta they will look will bolt up but you want the look of a lowered truck on it. the BS is probly around 5" guys that lower there truck use these. the tires will be extreamly sucked in. and probly cause clearness issues on the upper arm in the front with offroad tires if you want to chance it i would say a LT265/70R17 for every day non lifted use. but i 100% completely DO NOT recommed you ever using those rims with those tires...

Keep the stock wheels until your tires die then get 15x8 wheels
Keep the 32x11.50's till they die, then get 33x12.50's
Throw a body lift on it, this is the most basic method of getting lift w/out the cost, especially if you like to offroad occasionally.
I don't know fuzz about lowering so I leave you now, good luck, Blades
