Looks way better! I am not a fan of those wheels that were originally on there. I am personally a big fan of Alcoas though. Def. need some bigger rubber on there, those tires just look tiny. Have you thought about going any bigger than 285's, might fill the gap a little more, like 305's or 315's?

I am just thinking 285's may be to small. I also have them and they look good on a truck that is stockish height. Just sayin. My friend's truck is lifted 4" to 6", not sure, but 315's look really good on there, fill up the wheel wells nicely.

The bumper is shimmed on my friends truck, probably like 1/2" to 3/4", you would never know unless you were looking for it.
