285's or 33's pics

Alright I gotta get tires in a couple weeks. Pretty sure I've decided on Nitto Terra grapplers but cant decide between 265's and 285s. My trucks not lifted but the 265's on her now just look a little small... But don't want the 285s too look crammed in the wheel wells either. SO whos got pics of there obs on 285s with no lift????

285s look good on these trucks. Mine with 285s, front wheel is turned a little to the left so it looks a bit strange

No problem, If you look though the OBS picture thread, a lot of them have 285s. I would have gone for some 35's, but found near new 285/75 Dick Cepek Mud ctrys for $700

I load them into photobucket.com it makes it easy to put them on different forums that way.

Here's my truck on 285/75 Terra Grapplers. Front springs are worn so it sags a bit. Also had to shim the front bumper out a bit so they'd clear.
