My personal taste generally runs in the higher the better category, but my practical side says "do I really need those big tires and that lift?" My truck has the 33 inch tires stock, an it sits high in the rear, but I plan to put Bilsteins 5100 ride height adjustable shocks on the front to take care of the rake issue. I def want a bit more front height. I plan to put a set of 265s or 275s, bit more aggressive tires on it than the stock ones to reach my secret fishing holes. (only because here in Maine theres plenty of places to get into some rough country) I will keep my original tires though for trade in purposes, unless I fall in love with this truck after mods in which case I may keep it longer than my last 2, and sell the stock tires. Just my .02 cents.
