Got the Method Standard 17" - Now What Tires?

I bought a set of the 17" Methods but dont know what tires or lift would go well with it. I have stock Suspension now and am thinking of just leveling the front to fit 285/70/17 tires. I ride MX and am a short guy so I still want to be able to load my bike by myself. Will these tires fit well or rub in the rear when my truck is loaded?

Question on the rims... Are they these? ( picture below) I am looking at buying them also but I was wanting to know if the center cap and/ or the fake beadlock bolts were not plastic? I originally planned on getting xd Addicts until I found out the center caps and fake beadlock bolts were made of plastic. I mean why put plastic on a rim?!

I'm almost 100 percent positive the bolts are steel on these. That's why I ordered them as well.

That I'm not sure of. I'm still waiting on mine but I would assume aluminum. I'm running 33" Toyo AT 2's. Best tire if you don't spend too much time in the desert.

When you get the rim in let me know if you don't mind. I've.heard good and bad thing about those Toyo's. Seems to me.like more people run Goodyear Duratracs. How high of a leveling kit you looking at? I know stock you can run 265s so I'd say a 2 or 3" lift should easily clear those 285s.

I was lifted now I'm just leveled. I lifted the front 3 inches. It sits a hair higher in the front but it looks pretty leveled. My best friend won baja 1000 back to back on toyos. I didn't go with MT's because I drive on the street mostly.
