Default TIRE HELP...I need your input!

okay so I've made my final rim decision for my truck...IM STAYING ON STEELIES.

I've found a set of the 20x8 ram steelies that I'm going to buy, but I'm having a hard time deciding on tire dimensions. I'm considering so many...Basically I want it to look SOMEWHAT low profile. I definitely dont want it to be too wide and bulgey, and at the same time I dont want it to look to thin and bike tire-esque.

Keep in mind that my truck is lowered 2 in the front 4 in the rear (so i could probably lower the diameter of the wheel tire combo a bit). Its a 2010 (i want them to fit as flush with the outer wheel well as possible).

HELP! (please please provide pictures if you can)
