    Feeling buyers remorse, how do these wheels and tires look? In the next two months I plan on getting 2"-3" in the front and 1"-2" in the back. Perhaps i should have done one before the other.

    How do these look? Flaps are being taken off this week, prefer the look without them. 165/75/16 wildpeaks.

    Stick to 2 inches max on the lift and they look fine.

    I think it looks fine. I would prolly go 2-2 1/2" in the front. 3" might be a tad too much with those tires. Are you planning to add bumpers/winch in the future? Adding weight to the vehicle should factor into your lift height.

    3 is to high for him being 4wd. Unless he wants other issues with alignments and CV issues.

    I agree. And 3" will look like too much lift for those tires.

    Thanks guys for the reassurance, and yes, I did plan on being closer to the 2" than 3". Looking at front bumper in the near future. Just really hate buyers remorse and then looking at others 17" set up sent me down a rabbit hole.

    16's are better for off roading. Ley you air down a little more and you have more rubber to wheel ratio.:thumbsup:

    Personally I like the look of a smaller wheel and bigger tire - yours looks great IMO!

    Thank you. After I posted this, maybe it was the reassurance, but I look at them now and absolutely LOVE my wheels and tires. In fact, i even like the centers sticking out, meso has some replacements in case i ever get sick of those.

    Unless you plan on running 37s, no, 16's in my opinion are where its at
