Default lift with stock wheels???

Im wanting to get a 3 inch suspension lift for my 2003 fx4 offroad.
I want to get it in and installed before i buy bigger rims and tires. do you think this would look awkward (STUPID) with the lift but stock rims and hankook dynapro off road tires? any pics of any one doing a lift with stock wheels would be great.

yeah it will look weird but not that bad. how long would you have to wait until you could get new tires/wheels after you lift it?

If you just want bigger, think about a body lift for a couple hundred and then you have the extra cash for tires. That's the route I'm about to take.
