    Welcome to TW. PLEASE STOP YELLING ;)

    That tire size is approved for both 8" and 9" rims. The only one who can tell you which look better is yourself. Do a search and you'll find plenty of pictures of both setups.

    I'd prefer the 9" myself but it's your truck.

    There's not a lot of difference. Here's a pic of mine I just posted on another thread. These are 285/70R17 on 17x8 pro comp 7005 wheels.

    The amount of negative offset (how far the center of the wheel sticks out from centerline) probably has more impact on the "look" than the actual width.
