Leveled on stock 16's with 285's or 265's

I'm looking to buy tires here soon and I am split between those two sizes for my truck. The truck is leveled and I'm worried that if I get the 265's they will be to narrow for the look, since the front wheel well is affectivly bigger now, but I'm also not sure if the 285's are the right choice. Does anyone have and advice or pictures of there trucks with those tires on it. Thanks

are you running the oem 245 size now? I run 265's on 16x8 wheels but my only pics are side profile and don't give any perspective to tell you if they would be too narrow for your liking. I also run stock 245's in winter time and I have the pics of both in the before/after thread that's floating around. I can track that down if you like.

I've had 285s on both of my trucks leveled. Only way to go leveled on pyos IMO...both trucks are leveled on stock keys and no rubbing.

I actually have 285/50/20 Rockstarts with Nitto's that I do not like, they were on the truck when I bought it, I have a set of stock rims that I will be using. Baadgoat those dont look to bad at all with 285's on them.

I'd say 285's as well, fit nicely under my leveled truck.

My truck had 265s on it when i bought it. Wasnt leveled. Then i put 10" wide rock crawler rims on it with the 265s and it rubbed only because the wheels was so wide and offset wrong. But the tires look really good on a 10" rim. Tommaro im picking up a set of pro comp wheels and 285s and maybe a little tbar cranking. ill let you know the diffrence and post pics for reffernce too
