18's and Tires- Pics please

Well I was talking to my friends dad the other day and he wants to buy my wheels. I have been thinking about moving up to a 18.

Im not sure what to go with if I do. Either a 285/65/18 or 285/60/18

Either way can people post up pics with there trucks with 18's and the width of the wheel with the tire size?

I think my #1 option would be Diamo 17 karat :rockin

Just throwing this out there.......but after MUCH research I found that 17's are the way to go...due to tires are cheaper and there are A LOT more sizes available. Right now I'm running a 305/70-17 which is a 34X12 inch tire with NO rubbing....and it looks much better than 33's.

Officially sold the truck But bought an H2 that is getting a Dmax

285/65/18, its nbs but personally i think the old body style needs a bit bigger tire, cause the wheel wells can actually fit it.
