Default 3" lift/level Questions

If I installed a 3" lift/level kit on my 2011 Quad Cab 4x4 LT would it look silly if I didnt replace the wheels and tires at the same time?

The truck doesn't even have 200 miles on it yet, so I don't want to replace the tires until the stock ones are worn out...

Input and suggestions needed!

Thanks guys.

A lot of us (myself included) buy the aftermarket skins and wheels and sell the stock ones instead of waiting...

I'm doing a lift like that next week. I'll take some pix prior to changing the wheels and rims so you can get an idea of what it will look like.

Where do you sell them? Will a tire shop buy them from you?

I doubt it. I posted them for sale when I was on that "other" Dodge forum and they sold fast.
