Not sure what size wheels to buy

So here is a picture of my rig. I am due for new tires, but also would like to get some new wheels that are a little wider. I love the look of the truck but I feel like the stock wheels/tires are too narrow. Is this as easy and buying some wider wheels? Or can they fit wider tires on my stock wheels?

Whatever I buy I just want it to look right. Wheels are such a tough thing to picture for me. I don't want to make a mistake that I am stuck with. Thanks.

If you do go with a new wheel remember that backspacing and offset will play a big role in how far it'll stick out. Some offsets are pretty ridiculous.

Looks like Fordman has it figured out pretty well ^^^^ Nice!
