If you wheel, go 16's or stay with 17's. If it's just for show, I like the look of 18's....but nothing bigger...then it looks cheesy, IMO.

IMO the selection of tires decreases with the increase in rim size while the price increases and as mentioned above looks cheesey. But, I'm more into dirt and mud and stuff. If you like it, then that is what matters most.

i guess i'll just get the 17x9 from tire rack ...i think 285 70 17 is the biggest i can go with a 3 inch lift right?

Not necessarily. Depending on your wheel offset, you can run a 305 (I do: 305/70/17) and up to a 315/70/17 with a 3" lift. You may have to chop the body mounts, and get aftermarket UCA's.
