Rims and tires w/o lift

Do any of you guys have pics of 31's on a stock height setup? Im looking for something a little bigger and wider than my stock wheels but Im not ready to lift yet. Thanks.

Yeah, I know about the registry thread. I found it after I posted this. Thanks for posting anyway. I like how the stock rims look but I think Im aiming for wider rims too. Not sure yet.

You dont want wider rims. If you go wider than 8"s on anything less than a 12.50 wide tire, you will have a hard time keeping the bead on when you air down.

I just dont want a "balloon" look coming off the rim. But I do want a little wider look than stock (not much). Any suggestions?

A 31x10.50 tire on your stock rims. The rims pictured above are 15x7...yours are 15x8.

Here is mine with 33x10.50s on factory 15x8 rims. This is what it would look like....just shorter.

I like that, Maybe I should start thinking about a lift more seriously. Thanks. What do you think about the "Rock Krawler 2"? Its cheap. I like that. Any other ideas?

15x8.

BTW, I got lucky and shopped around at the local tire shops until I found these "used" . They had 300 miles on them. Got the rims and tires for $500 cause the guy that had them decided he wanted to spend some bucks and went all the way up to 35's after a month. Give some shops a call and see if they have anything like that, might be able to find something.

I'd still like to eventually do like a 2" budget boost or something, not too crazy...but I'm short on cash so this works fine for now.
