    Is it just me, or do my 265/75 courser M/T's look tiny..they only have 1800 miles on them so they arent worn...they do the job for sure but i just think it looks "not to beat around the bush" wimpy! what do you guys think...do you think gettin the wheels out a little with spidertrax's would help get the stance i guess im lookin for? lets figure this thing out haha

    Look good to me the only thing with tires i think is the more aggresive the side tread the meaner the tire looks just my opinion. I like the bronze you painted the rims thinking of doing the same on my speedway blue.

    I think they look good... not too small.

    What kind of paint did you use on your rims? Brand? Color?

    Look great to me, I have pictures 265/75/16 & 255/85/16. The 255" look so thin cuz they are taller. I like the 255's I still like 285/75/16's but that just for looks. Lot's of tire's Cooper makes a SST Maxx. They are wider, taller & deeper tread than the bfg 265/75/16's. After I got my 255/85/16's they looked very thin. I wanted a the KM2's they were off road mud and thiner yep. People told me they were wider untill I seen them and-not about the same.

    If you can read that they are 6.8" the coopers are 7.2" they look wider no clue why.

    Look at the cooper web site than Tire rack (BFG just has the Sect. width)

    The more I look & learn the more BS fly's

    That copy & paste din't work Tire rack has the KM2's at 6.8 & the Cooper str's at 7.2" and they have it right. If you look at the side by side the KM2's just look wider. I had them rolled out and the sidewall makes them look wider. They still look like cutters. just rambling on.

    i just recently did a lift, but before the lift, my 265/70/17 looked right at home. now with about 3" of lift, it looks scrawny. so i tried on a set of 1.25" spacers from my brother's 4runner and it made a big difference look wise. now i'm picking up a set of 1.5" spacers this thursday:D. add the spacers, you will like the outcome.

    If you use spacers try not to use big ones or else you will make those narrow 265's on your truck look like a skateboard with old school metal roller skate wheels, with too wide trucks (skateboard trucks)
