Debating on which will look better but also work well without any issues. Truck is a 2001 Silverado Z71 with a body lift and stock 16" wheels. I'd like to go with some 285/75R16's due to being cheaper in cost but will they look too small with the body lift on?

If you are comparing the 285/75r16 to a 295/75r16 then they are darn near the same.
285s 11.2 wide and 32.83 diameter vs 295s 11.6 wide and 33.42 diameter. Depending on the tire choice those wont be exact either.

I would get whichever is cheaper

How big is your body lift? I had a 2001 stepside with 1" body lift and cranked up torsion bars and taller blocks in the rear and ran the 295/75/16 on some 16x8 wheels (which are a little wider than stock). I had to trim the front air dam a little but it worked well. You would get more tire bulge with a narrower wheel.

I honestly don't know what size the body lift is. It came on the truck when I purchased it. I'd actually prefer it back to stock height but too much trouble trying to remove the body lift. I'm just going to go with some 285/75R16's and call it a day.
