I dont think you should go with anything smaller than a 37.

I would go 37's. You might be able to squeeze a 38x13.50 but there would be some rubbing. I ran 38x15.50's on my 6" for a few days while I was waiting to do my 8" and I had to be pretty damn careful to not munch a fender. Depends on the truck but I would say 13-14 mpg on the interstate, 9-10 mpg around town. There are some tuners/programmers that claim better mpg without deleting the DPF. There may be some that do with little or no power increase but you won't find a high hp tuner or programmer that will get you better mpg without deleting the DPF. A high hp tune generates more soot which will clog your DPF much faster resulting in more frequent regen which in turn reduces mpg.

I'm running 37's with a Pro Comp 6" w/radius arms lift. I have had no issues with rubbing so far.
