It would probably be easier to get some American Eagle wheels. That's what I did. I think this setup cost around $1400 with wheels, tires, and insallation.

For price just type the wheel brand and wheel model into a search and you get sites with prices. They shouldn't be more than $170 a piece. As for tires I would go with Nitto Terra Grapplers. Thats what I have on that truck and one morning driving through one of my jobsites it was dark out drove through some mud made it out and didn't even notice it untill one of the labors got stuck.

I would decide on tires based on what the truck does...Being 2wd I would assume you are not going to be taking it offroad too heavily...if thats the case I would lean towards more of the A/T for treadlife, better in water/snow, quieter...
