Take a look at the fatbottom thread or lifted dually thread. Most guys have stock wheels running 12.5 wide tires. If your're ok with the look, then your golden. It would definitely be nicer to run a wider wheel but you will have a hard time finding them for the 8 on 170 bolt pattern.
This is one downfall to our trucks, lack of wheel selection especially wider than 6". What size tire were you planning to run? I know you can get a 255/85/16 BFG MT which is a 33x10.50 I believe.
As far as wear, most do not seem to have many issues. Take a look at the threads I mentioned. We recently brushed over tire wear in the fatbottom thread
