I haven't decided on wheels yet, but for tires, I really like the Cepeks FC 2. Solid tire? Damn near $400 each, so I would hope so.
If you need to be under 6'8" then a 4" and maybe 34"/35" tires is what will work.
Doing 35" and 4" lift will take you to 6'7" providing the stock height is 6'2"
My truck was 82.5" when I ran 35's for winter.
And I have a 6" lift and Bilsteins at 1.4"
This is taller than 6'8"
If you're going with a 4" lift with 2" rear block the Bilsteins may not be necessary as you'll be almost level with maybe 3/4"-1" rake
