    What year truck do you have? Since you have a leveling kit you can probably go bigger tire-size wise. But just judging from the picture they look good. As for the wheels, I happen to like the look of streetlock (fake beadlock) wheels.

    I agree you definitely should go bigger on the tires. with the leveling kit I'd say at least 285's

    285? That's just wider, not bigger.

    They will be a bit taller also. Bigger is always better.

    I think he meant with the same ratio, 285/70 rather than 265/70. 265/70 is a stock sized tire on my year Silverado, so they aren't very big-I would go bigger too.

    Thank you Hawaiikid I did not clarify myself. I knew someone would call me out on that one. Yes I meant with the same ratio so its wider and taller

    well assuming you have a nbs silverado, those wheels should work, however with the +18 offset running 285 tires expect possibly some tire rub on the uca .. 5.25 is the ideal backspacing for nbs silverado, 5.5-5.7 would be pushing running a 9 inch wide wheel. If you anything older then 07 don't listen to anything I just said, I can't vouch for the older trucks.
