Default 5" lift questions

Hey guys im kind of new to the site and I have a few questions. I have just bought a 2001 ram 1500 4x4 quad cab slt laramie. I have just bought the Rough Country 5" suspenion lift and I am wanting to stay on the stock wheels. I want to know what tires will fit on the stock rim and not have a bunch of rubbing, a tiny bit of rub wont bother me that much. I want a good mud tire too. I know I had another question but for some reason I just for got it lol. When I think of it I'll post it up.

Any feedback would be great!

EDIT: I did think of another question. Will I have to change the gearing for this to be safe? The biggest concern I have is that I want the truck to still run right and be reliable. I know that if I want the speedo to be accurate I will need to get a tuner and recalibrate it for the correct wheel and tire combo. If I do need to change the gearing, around what ratio should I get and how much will it cost?
