    So im thinking of getting new tires for my 2016 Tundra that has about 14k on it. Reason being is that i want to take it out to the snow with my kids up here in washington and dont think that the OEM tires are up for the job. But im not ready to go out and get a lift as well.

    What tire should i run on my stock OEM rim that later would still look good on my truck with a 3-4 inch lift?

    Stock tires are OK if you're not in much snow and it's not deep. A good A/T that's snowflake rated is just fine if you're not driving hardback or icy roads on a regular basis

    I have TOYO Open country C/Ts due to the aggressive look but still snowflake rated. They are great but expensive. I also have GoodYear Wrangler Duratracs on all of my fleet vehicles. I recommend them to everyone that asks your same questions

    Most people get the lift first because the size of the tires you want will depend on the size of the lift.

    If you are not planning to lift more than 3 inches, I would say 275/70/18 is a safe size. It will look good on a stock Tundra and it will look reasonably good with 3 inch lift. I second GY DuraTrac. They are excellent for winter driving.

    Well that all depends on your POV, you can get some ideas in the wheel & tire section. Me personally, I cant think of a size that'll fit on a stock vehicle and still look good with 3-4" of lift.

    Here is one picture of 275/70/18 with a lift. Even though I personally would like smaller gaps between tires and fenders (like you), I think the truck still looks sweet. I think it has something to do with the aggressiveness of the tires also.
