4" Lift look silly with stock tires?

So I have a 4" lift and 35 tires, but the mileage is killing me so i was thinking of going back to stock tire size.......

Would it look awful and stupid?? or would it look OK??

Already have the sct, and exhaust, for mileage not much else I can do, so im thinking of dropping the massive tires, that should help right? Thansk!

either the 285/75's or 305/75's either would look good plus its a ford so it would look good with go kart tires on it!!

285/75 will be around 32.5" in diameter.

I run that with no lift... and it fills the wheel wells nicely.

Why don't you lower it back down?
