Will a 265/75/16 tire look weird on a 16x8 rim?

Really like the mammoth boulder wheels. I figured i would just put a 265/75/16 tire on it but have seen alot of people recommend a 7 inch wheel to look the best with this size. Im afraid it will have alot of buldge on the sidewall. Are there any other options to put on this wheel, i dont really want to step up to a 33 because i have auto and 3.21 gears, dont want to regear.

You can run a 285/75r16 without regearing. It is less than an inch taller than the 255/75r17 that comes on most jeeps.

I ran 265/75-16 on a set of 16x8.5" wheels on my 2011 JKU and they didn't look right. They worked fine, but they looked stretched. 285s all the way!
