I'll be doing a Rancho 4" lift and don't know what tire/rim combo would look best. Either a 17 or 18 rim.

This is the look i'm after.

I'm running a 17" with 33" tire, the bigger tire would just give you more clearance with the bigger wheel.

18" rim's and tire's would look great but might be a bit more expensive than a 17" rim package, boath will look great,, I would look at either a 305/70/17 (33.9") on a 17"x9" wheel with 4.5" of back spacing or 325/60/18 (33.3") with a 9.5" rim on a 18"x9.5" wheel that should put you with the look your after also check out wheels here they sell direct

keep in mind a true 35" tire is only 1" taller than a true 33" with the weight of the truck on it and most 35's actually measure 34.5" tall so a 35x12.50 or equivalent will work also

keep in mind the taller the tire the more gear your going to loose, so that could be fixed with a gear swap or a programmer to get some power back
