tire question pic's please

Im fairly new to RF and the form posting thing. Im in need of some rubber and I'm looking at the new MT/R. Wondering on what tire size to go with. I know I can fit 285/75r16's or 32/11.5r15's. Any pictures of newer trucks with these tires would be awesome. If I go with the 32's I know ill need new rims, so I'm thinking like an eagle alloy or something with 3.25 offset so they stick out a little. Will those fit ok?

sweet trucks, I'm leaning towards the 32's cause I got the 3.0 with 4.10's and not too keen on regearing. 285's might be sluggish right? Ok thanks Ranger4.0

I'll put up some pic's when it gets done. Aparently the bolts in my cab were backwards or something retarded like that, so they had to remove a ton of stuff for the body lift. Sounded a little weird, but they said it would be done tomorrow. Get to test the tire in deep snow though. Were getting up to 12'' this weekend.
