Think this will look stupid?

so i have an early 99 250 that is sitting on 35x12.50s right now stock with no rubbing and decent clearance i am wanting to put a lift on it and run maybe 36 or 37 inch tires. i was thinking about going with a six inch lift but if i keep the 35s for a while will the lift make the tires look tiny if so should i just wait and get it all at once. thanks

early 99 F250
ZF6
its stock, at least thats what i tell people

great looking truck. im leaning towards the 6 inch and 37s but i would have to ride around with 35s for a while until they wore out because i dont have enough money to just throw perfectly good tires away

Jstokes1987 - How are you planning on pumping 2 more inches into your suspension? I have been kicking around this idea for mine also. We have the same suspension.
