new truck want new tires

Okay guys, I just got my truck and the guy that had it before me put on some bicycle tires so I am looking at ditching these and putting on some rims and tires. I like aftermarker chrome rims and wanted to know about how big of a rim can I got without lifting my truck. I want to put some decent size tires as go to the country and get in a little mud time to time but don't want a bunch of road noise either. I am thinking a/t will be fine but want that agressive look not that aggressive sound. I don't want to lift my truck. Any sugestions?

sorry it is a 99 f250 Supercab longbed 4x4. factory stance.

I run the Dura Grapplers from Nitto, and love them, but its mostly a street queen until hunting season, even then, I have ZERO complaints about this tire. A lot of people are running Terra Grapplers from Nitto, and really enjoying them, quiet, yet aggressive enough for moderate offoading

I don't know about that year. It would also depend on the backspacing of the wheels you choose

I have run Terra Grapplers for over 2 years now. They have been pretty good tires and aren't loud on the street at all. They aren't worth crap in the mud though. I don't think any AT is going to be worth a crap in mud. You need to decide what tradeoffs you are willing to make and what is important to you and go from there.
