    Hey guys..this may be a dumb question,but i was wondering if my tires which are 255/70/16 -will look too small with the 3"lift. I would buy new bigger A/T but i have ALOT of tread still left on mine. Thanks in advance for the responses. :)

    Check out my current tires-

    You will have a lot of space between the top of the tire and the fender. I agree with everyone else... sell and buy new ones!

    I agree. Better get some new tires to fill up the space.

    err change em out! i ran the stock 265 for a few days and it looked really off with such a huge gap that could see everything in your fender. definitely get a new set.
