Swapping from 16" to 17" wheels?...

Does this set the truck up a little?

Also, if I change out the 245's on my 16" steelies to 265's does that raise the stance a bit?

And if I went to 17" wheels with 265's...again...this sets my truck up even more from the 245's...or the 265's on the 16"ers?

Point is: I'm not looking to build a rock climber or mudder...but I'd like to give the stance more of a truck look and less of an SUV stance.

TIA...as always.

You need to be using a tire calculator. This one will answer most of your questions except stance which is probably more subjective. http://www.1010tires.com/tiresizecalculator.asp

I went from the 245 series 16" baja wheels to 265/65 R17 on sport wheels. They're extremely close in overall height but quite a bit wider. In my opinion, they look a lot better than the original 245's.
