Anyone got any? I want to see how it looks. I love the look of the 285's but dont want to get new rims yet. $$$. Next time around. I have been searching but cannot find any.

Here are some pics of mine just a few weeks ago. Totally stock with 265's. No trimming, no cranking on the T-bars. Looks much better IMHO

2" lift with 265's on stock rims. A bad pic of a dirty truck but well you get the idea.

How many here think that 265's are the way to go compared to 285's and why?

I have a set of the stock wheels and tires, a set of 265's (16" wheels) (currently on my 2500 Suburban) on same wheels as Freewayrandy, and also a set of 285's on 17" wheels (currently on my D/A) on a the same wheels as my 265's are on.

I get a little rub when truck is offroad and at a specific angle even with T bars cranked about 1 1/2". I was thinking that with the 265's no rubbing, I can relax the T bars and possibly get more power, better milage, no front suspension damage, and the shocks will not be over extended.

Opinions please.

Makes good sense to me - going with 265s that is.
