N00b wheel/tire question

I've done a bunch of searching but need some advice.

I'm getting a '11 access cab soon and it comes with the stock steel 16" rims. I want to get new black rims and don't want to make any modifications to the truck (lifting, cutting, etc).

I want to go with the 16x9 ATX artillery rims.
Will these specs work without modifications?

Offset: -12mm Backspacing: 4.52" Bolt Pattern: 6-139
Rec. Tire Size:265/70-16

Would these work better with the 265/70-16 tires or 245/75-16?

You shouldn't have a problem with the 265/70's & you could even go with a 265/75. Thats the max tire size with stock wheels

I got a quote from Mr. Wheel deal and he suggested that size tire (I'm not really sure why). I've never gotten new tires or wheels so the help is greatly appreciated!

One more question and I think I have this figured out. How much trouble am I going to run into with the TPMS? If I buy a replacement set of TPMS and put them in the new wheels will a tire shop be able to program them or would I have to go to the dealership?

Just re use your old ones. They can either flip them over or use TPMS bands.

Nice, I'll reuse the old sensors then. Makes life easier.

So the Artillery's with 265/70 or 265/75 will work and not rub?
