Getting new tires/wheel opinions

Hi, I just got a 2010 Double cab 4x4.. Im looking to get some good but affordable wheels. I will have a 3" lift and running some 285s on 17" wheels.

Im looking at this

http://www.4wheelparts.com/prodDetai...=BRW909B786045

or

http://www.4wheelparts.com/prodDetai...tNo=PCW98-7883

Now questions
1. I saw few running pro comp wheels, but are they good/reliable?
2. Having wide tires what specs should i look into, lets say 3" vs 4.5" backspacing.. i should go with 4.5".. or doesnt matter and i would need to use some spacer regardless
3. you guys have links to better deals or maybe better wheels?
4. any suggestion on tires.. Aggressive looking, decent on road and off road. maybe less than 200 each tire

Sorry im a noob on trucks, saw few related threads but I have too much question so i'de rather start my own than to threadjack.. lol

thanks

I personally like the looks of the first wheel better but haven't heard any negative about the pro comp wheels either.

As for tires, I am rockin Nitto Terra Grapplers and I love them. I have BFG A/Ts on my old truck and didn't like them. I did not feel like I had great traction and they wore like s**t.

^^ So you like both? :P

I like the first better too.. just looking for some feedback or maybe some answers to shed some light.. ill look into that nittos. Im sure these are not best of wheels, not looking to pay some baller wheels like 600 a piece. but this seems like it will do the job for what im gonna use it for, great pice too..

http://www.4wheelparts.com/prodDetai...=BRW909B785345

now after hours of reading, i have settled with the two.. 285/70/17, leaning towards the cooper STT.. what do you guys think?

cooper stt


Kuhmo road venture MT KL71


i was gonna go with nitto trail grappler but couldnt find any 285/17s.. and im not sure how much rubbing i would get with only 3" lift on 295/70/17
