    I just had the TSB done on the rear and the bilsteins will be installed next week and be set at either 2.5 or 1.75. What I want opinions on is that I am going to stay with the stock tire size of 265-70-16 with either BFG AT's or Nitto Terra Grapplers. If I stay with the stock size, will they look too small in the wheel wells?

    Only went .85 on the billys because the back settled to only 1 inch above stock
    with the TSB.

    I just posted a picture of my truck with stock tires/rims with a 3" lift. That might give you some idea. I'm not sure how to link the post...I just posted it a few minutes ago here..

    I had 265/75/16 before. About halfway through the tire life I went with 285/75/16 Nitto Terra Grapplers after I installed 5100s. I am extremely happy with the bigger tire. You can tell a big difference with more wheel well filled up. Looks a lot more agressive.

    Whatever tire you decide to go with.. I suggest jumping up to the 265/75/16's. The cost wont be that much different. That way you wont be showing too much empty space between the tire and the fender. I cant think of any downsides..
