I say do the same, cause its a pain buying diff. tires, just keep it simple, and do same tires as well... IF you really wana save money use your stock wheels and ad bigger tires, like 31s...

You want to do Mud tires out back and All terrains in the front? No way.... The offset wheel/tire size only looks good on a street truck that has fatter meets in the back. When I was in high school I had a lower ridding truck (not slammed) that had 255/50/16's in the back and 245/50/16's in the front.

You can get your stock wheels powder coated easily (as long as there is somewhere around you that does it) Then you can put 31x10.5x15's on there...

I'd go with 15x8s. Your 15x7s will give you a very narrow stance after the lift.

Probably 31x10.5 or 11.5 if they have them. I think they would look good. You may even want to consider running 32's with a 3 inch lift. I'm not really much help on tires though unless we are talking about 33's.
