i agree with ya. I like 11.5" wide tires, which I run 31x11.5 LTB's and it looks alot better than 10.5" wide tires.I ran 31's and liked them. IMO, a regear is beneficial, even with 31's.
When it was time for new tires, I went to 32's and I think they look tons better. It's not just the additional height, but the width looks more substantial. I did have to increase my lift about 2" more, but I like the look better.
33's would have been good, but I wasn't ready to start cutting my fenders yet. 32's fit with very minimal trimming on my front bumper end caps.
