Another tire ? but should be easy

Guys, I'm looking for a wider/bigger/white letter tire to fit my stock lift and rim. Nothing MONSTER just noticeably bigger/wider. You read all these tire threads and it just makes you nuts, spacers,lifts,etc and really nothing with stock lift.

Thank you for that post it really did help. The only thing that should of been explained more is if you go wider I understand spacers will help but what size spacers?

I did read this, is this the end all?

Well, the best spacers are generally considered SpiderTrax, which are 1.5". That effectively takes the backspacing of the stock wheels to the 4.75" range, which should clear most any width tire except for the huge ones.
