Hang tight , hopefully someone who's done the lowering thing will be along here shortly . Make sure you stop by the newbie section and introduce yourself then go to the User Cp at the top of the page and complete your profile . It will show us what you have when posting a question or comment .

A 285/30/24 would be 30.7" and a 295/30 would be 31" in diameter.
Pirelli makes a 285/30/24 and i didn't find any 295/30/24's
I used http://www.1010tires.com/TireSizeCal...?action=submit
to play with the numbers...try it out with the tire sizes you find.

That I can't help you with, I would call the place doing the bag setup and ask them what to run for backspacing! Tucking wheels takes some backspace know how

plan on cutting w/ a 10" wide and 4/6"... Maybe only the fender lips, but something will have to be "persuaded". I would drop first so you can have the truck measured for wheel BS.
I have 4/6" on a 2005 and run oem 20"s and w/ a 285/50 I rubbed a lot. (I went to 265/50s) I plan on doing 22"s and running 265/40s to be sure I don't eat tires on fender lips.
