Need advice/pics!

It's time for new tires and I want to get 18x9 moto metal 955s (-12 offset) and toyo at2 in 295/70/18. They will be going on the truck in my signature. Wondered if anyone else is running this combo and if you had any pics. Would like to see what it looks like on a leveled truck. Also want to make sure this will work with no rubbing on fenders or springs! Thanks!

Thanks for replying. I think it would look good but still want to see it on another truck. Those wheels are a big step for me as I am a little old school with wheels. My style is the stock style bullet holes but I really like those 955s.

Thanks for the input Blue99 and Redlazer! I think it will look pretty good. The tires shouldn't stick out too far from the wheel well, you think?

No the tires are only about a 1/4 in wider than the ones I have. So I do not think they will stick out to far.

mine are 285-75'-16's and its like 11.2 inches wide i think.
and they barely poke out of the wheel wells. never ever had them rub.
rims are 16x8 -6mm
i think its a good look. could go a little bigger.

oh and i have a 3 inch leveling kit

Thanks for the help, guys! Probably gonna pull the trigger on em next week or so. Also, my leveling springs seem like they may be sagging a bit so I might go back to factory V codes that came on the truck with 2" mini packs.
