Default tires and lift...Look Weird?

Im trying to figure out if my truck would look weird with 3 inch lift on top of what I have. Right now I have 32s and a 3inch bL. Would 3 more inches higher look weird. Im planning on putting 3 inch blocks in the rear. I don't know how to lift the front yet. Any Ideas?

Picture of my truck with 32s and 3 inch BL.

I know. I told the guys at wheel works I wanted 33s but you know how they are.. They told me to go with 32's because they will not rub. I know I should of gone with 33. My 32 still rub.

Actually looking at the paper work. It says 32.50s. lol

lol *******es.

If you were to get bigger tires, 33's, clinton has a double lift on 33's and his looks fine, you could do spindles up front as well. Not hard to do at all, took me about 5 hours on my own

33s ftw. no bigger.

35s will look stuffed and you will have no flex. I had 9" of lift with 33s and it looked and performed perfect.

What does not make sense to me..Is I measure the tires from ground up they measure 28. something..But when I went in to ask if them ripped me off they say NO the book says they are 32..I don't get it.
