I dont think a 4.5" would look to bad with those tires. But its your truck. As long as you like it

I had stock tires with a 4" lift for about 2 weeks. It doesn't look bad, but it definitely looks better with larger tires. Your tires are wider than my stock ones so it might look ok.

A 4.5" won't look horrible, but a 2.5" would look better with those tires, IMO.

If you plan on going with bigger tires down the road then I wouldn't hesitate to run your current tires until then.

Im leveled on 35s and I think it looks awkward. 37s really fill it out so much better

This is my old truck. I like space in between the tires and fender wells as you can tell and this truck had a 8" lift with 37's. So im kinda goin off that. I think I would have the same space with a 4.5 with my 33's as I did with my 8" and 37's

Both of these are 4.5" on stock 33"s.



This is 4.5" on 35"s.
