Nitto 295/50/20
8.5X20
bolt pattern 6X5.5
I just purchased Belltech shackles to bring the rear end down 2" to level it.
Check out tire rack or discount tire.

I just put a readilift on my 04 sierra 4x4 for $230 plus 100 to install.Great kit...rides like stock and now I can go with 33" tires...the front was lifted 1 3/4 "" for the truck to be level

well as far as the rim size goes...
the rockstar's only come in 20's for 1/2 ton trucks and above...
KMC also makes an 18" rockstar but the offset is so ridiculous your tires would be completely outside of your tire wells

If you want an A/T tire, BFG and Nitto are really nice
Price wise...Pro comp Extreme a/t are pretty sweet too

i would also say 20x8.5 rims with a 6x5.5 bolt pattern
im guessing your not going to do much off roading so go with an AT in that 295/50/20 size
I would suggest the NItto Terra Grappler for you they will look great and are good on road. if you want a more aggressive tire than go with the STT they cant be beat

as for tires look here onlinetires.com because the tire rack does not have cooper or nitto

since you still off road it couldnt hurt to get the 295/50/20 STT. you will be happy ive ridden in trucks with them and they ride like an AT

and i dont off road... i get bored at least once a week and blast in the woods around by my house...
and sometimes when we go Quad riding i leave the bikes on the trailer and go with my truck lol

so looking for an aggressive look but more for use on the road and highway use..

got my mind set on the 20"S

yea the STT should suit you fine, however they are a mud terrain but still are great on road. also, if you do decide that you dont want a mud terrain the BFG AT is pretty aggressive looking as well as the cooper discover ST
... i actually just rechecked the size and the 295/50 are a little under a 32"/12"or so, so I would suggest, if they make them, a 295/55/20 its a 33"/12"

i like the idea of smaller 32.5" ones..

so those with the 20"s and leveling kit should be fine on my truck no trimming..
