    you will clear just fine with a 4/6 an it will look good. i would get a set of 26 inch rims for that truck with a 285/25/R26 and it would still clear

    I've seen a lot of lowered trucks with big rims and low profile. It's a popular look, just not for me. The tires do tend to wear down pretty quickly I think.

    Tire wear is relative to quality of lowering kit and wheel alignment. Ride height has nothing to do with tire wear.
