Welcome to the forum! There are plenty of options for tires: Toyo Open Country M/T, Nitto Trail Grappler, etc. Obviously, the bigger the size, the bigger the price. Were you thinking about running 35s? As for the rims, I'd look at 17 or 18 inch rims for offroading.

You might want to look into a leveling kit up front, that way you'll have plenty of room. There are a few folks on here with leveling kits and 35s. Here's one:

I would agree and say the Toyo Open Country MTs. If you want to get 35" tires I would really suggest lifting it a little, even a leveling kit. If you stuff 35" tires stock it looks kinda half ass in my opinion. Also if you are getting rims get a negative offset, that will pop the tires away from the truck. That will help with any rubbing issues that you may have had.

Consider the BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A tire.
It is a respectable off-road tire, very good in snow, long lasting and much quieter on paved highways than most in it's class.
It is NOT a serious off-road tire, but an excellent all-around tire with an off-road personality.

Well all depends on what your going to use this vehicle for, slight offroad such as gravel or small mud holes, or desert areas are fine, a great all season will work or a mud tire...your choice! Toyo M/T's are highly recommended same with wheels stick around 17-18" as you will spend alot less!

As for 35's if you plan to keep the driving mild with a level you should have no problem with fitment or slight rubbage, but if you plan to wheel the vehicle a little harder, a more sever angles, you will lose alot of travel having such a big tire stuffed under the wheel well! so maybe using a small size would be beneficial!
