Different wheels or just go to a 245-70-16 tire. It gives a wider tire look.

Some will suggest spacers but its probably the same cost to get different wheel. The idea of spacers scares me.

Spacers gave me the look I was looking for.
They are an iffy subject on this forum so you will get many mixed opinions.

Spacers.

Spacers plus black painted wheels.


Spacers plus lift.

Simply going with a more aggressive tire may give you that look you want as well even staying with stocks size

Not mods or spacers. Pictures don't do it justice. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't look like a beefy lifted truck cause its not. But did give it a much more aggressive stance that I am very pleased with until I put the lift and bigger tires on it.
