This is the best picture I have. My snow tires are 17's. 265/70/17's I believe. Hope this helps!

I think they look better 1" lower in front, 3" lower in rear.

I'm still toying with the idea of a vintage look paint job. The smaller wheels help pull off the look. That's besides the fact that smaller wheels with taller rubber generally perform better in all areas except handling responsiveness.

When my truck arrives my stock XL/XLT FX4 17" wheels will be coming off in favor of some Lariat 18" ones. I, like you, appreciate the look of 17" but in this case I didn't like the Raptor wheels (I don't like black paint in the voids) and the stock XLT 17" weren't to my taste.

I'm going to be swapping out my 20" wheels for some 18's or 17's at some point this summer. Can't decide on 17 or 18's, will probably just see what's the best deal on craigslist at the time, but am leaning towards 18's. Until I see a thread like this one, then I'm thinking I really like the looks of the 17's, Lol.
