2010 4WD Crew cab Wheel Selection?

I just purchased a 2010 4wd crew cab and the first thing I want to do is upgrade the wheels and tires. In looking into this it seems it's not as easy as I thought it would be. I found some nice looking 17" Moto Metal 957's but I don't kmow if I need to get a lift kit so they'll fit right and if I don't lift the truck will they stick out too much with 275 70/17 tires. The guy at 1-Stop Rim Shop said it's hard finding after market wheels to fit this truck.
If anybody has some pics with this truck with after market wheels I would ove to see them.
Thanks!

My head is spinning.

My advice would be for you to get rims with 4.5" backspacing. With this setup, you can run 265/70/17's on stock suspension or 285/70/17's with a 3" lift.

I have no idea what the guy means by it being hard to find wheels that fit these trucks.

Is he talking about clearing the calipers?

you came to the right place for info. I believe you may have some rubbing issues with that size tire on stock suspension.

Check out the suspension forum. There is a stickied thread with all sorts of info.

Two good quality lifts that are relatively inexpensive are bilstein 5100 shocks, or OME shocks and springs.
