    Question for everyone. I am getting a 3" pro comp lift with LR UCA's. With that I am also getting pro comp 17x9 4.5 backspace,rims. I will be doing slight off roading, nothing serious. So, the tires are more for asthetics than function. I like the look of alot of tire on a truck. Should I put on 305/65/17's or the 285/70 or 75/17's. which in ya'lls opinion looks better? The 305's are gonna be pro comp xtreme. looking at the bf all terrain for the 285. Will i have to trim on either?

    305's will require a substantial amount of trimming/ cab mount chop...even then they will probably still rub. Stick with 285/70's

    Trimming is required for all those options. Here's the order of less -> more trimming so you can decide based on how much you want to do:

    285/70/17(33x11" tire): fairly minor. Basically the bottom of the fender flare and a little inner fender trimming. Body mount chop possibly required.
    305/65/17(33x12" tire): Same as above, but slightly more required and body mount chop probably a must unless your truck is a street queen and you dont mind hearing it rub the body mount sometimes.
    285/75/17(34x11" tire): These will require quite a bit of trimming, body mount hack is a must. Running the stock front bumper wouldnt be recommended, youd be better off with an aftermarket front bumper that gives additional tire clearance. These will also rub the top of the fenderwell at full suspension compression so if you offroad the truck, you'll want some different front bump stops.
