I'd say go with 285's. You'll probably need a lift or maybe just crank the t-bars. If you can't afford them then just go with whichever one's are the least expensive.

I say do the body lift first and then the tires. I'm actually thinking of getting a suspension lift since me and my bros are going to be offroading more often soon and it would help. Not only that, it will make the truck look even more badass!

How many inches is that superlift? Also what size tires would look good with that lift?
