Larger tires? Opinions please : PICS

Sooo I just had my truck lifted 2.5" all around, and had new 20" wheels installed with 35x12.5 Toyo Open Country MT's

Now, I think the truck looks great, and I did not want to go too high, but I kinda sorta wish is went just a little higher... lol. I also think the 35's might not be quite enough sidewall. Again, I don't think it looks bad, but think it might look a tad better with a taller tire.

So my thought is 37's would give me that little extra lift, and give me more sidewall at the same time.

So what do you guys think? Try and find some 37's and ditch the 35's? Or stay with what I have?

FYI I have ZERO rub at full lock in either direction with no trimming whatsoever at all as it sits.

Also, if I do go 37's, I can't find a 37x20x12.5 in my two fav tires, which are the toyo m/t's and the duratracs. Do you guys think 13.5 would be too wide?

This is how it sits now, except the chrome steps are gone, and the AMP steps are on.

I'm not a fan of lifted trucks...your truck however, I'm a fan of. Tires are the right size, they fit the truck with that aggressive tread. Bigger tires might force you to find a truck to fit them and then it's

i'd leave it since the tires are new. but if you go to 37's look at the nitto trail grappler. been really happy with mine so far. have 11k miles on them and they look new still.
