Post New Tires - Help!

I'm needing new tires but can't decide the size or the brand. Need some I suggestions please. I currently have 265/75/16 but would like to go bigger with a possible 3" lift and minimal trimming. I'm also looking at the 18" Rockstar rims as a possibility with a set of new tires. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

With no lift you can do 265/65/18, with a lift and trimming you can do 285/65/18.

They are the second most "bro" rim ever, behind the moto metal skulls.

What do you suggest then? I'd like to go with some black rims with a little chrome for the contrast.

I've heard decent things about them, but have not owned them personally.

You noted you like black and chrome together and wanted suggestions. My two favorites are the:

Agreed. I don't care for the center caps though, they are a bit too large....

Mostly Highway but I go off road during hunting season. Very little snow. Maybe 3 times a year. I need something that is good in mud since i use my truck instead of an ATV.
