    Looking to get some flat black rims and more aggressive tires (all terrains probably). I don't really do much off road and I do some towing.

    I have no clue how to shop for these items. I'm also interesting in going with larger tires, which would probably require a body lift (or just spend the money on a suspension lift?)... something like 17" wheels, 285 tires, and 2" body lift?

    any suggestions/help? merchants, brands, styles, etc?

    Yes, you should start by contacting tire stores and asking them questions and getting accurate professional answers.

    Basically, what's the biggest tire I can go without a lift? I'm planning on cranking the TBs tomorrow.

    If I went with a 2" or 3" body lift (suggestions on these welcome) what size wheel/tire do you recommend?

    I plan on stopping by a few stores in the area, but I would also like some suggestions from people not trying to take my money.

    and I see no ads. Firefox+Adblock FTMFW! So, no I won't be clicking on any ads you are seeing.

    I have been looking at several sites, but I don't know what size tires would require a lift and what size lift etc.

    thanks for the suggestions given. I was also hoping to get suggestions on styles that look good on other people's colorados.
