Lifting \'06 1500 Crew, need tire sizing help

Hey guys,
Here's the deal, I just ordered an '06 1500 Crew from my dads dealership. I was looking into installing a body lift, and they found me a kit that comes with lifting blocks and shocks. As far as my dad told me, it's not a suspension lift. Anyway, it's supposed to lift the truck 5 in the front and 4 in the back. Now I suspect that the higher blocks are in the front so that you don't have to crank the torsion bars up to level the front end with the back.
Anyway, to the point, I'm going to be installing some Toyo Open Country M/T's, and I need some size sugguestions. I don't really want any rubbing going on, and I was thinking of some 305/70R16's,or some 295/70R17's. I'm looking for some aftermarket wheels as well, but have not decided on any yet. Any help you guys can give me is greatly appreciated!!!

Wrong forum there Sparky. Try posting it in the IFS forum.

And just for the record what do you plan on putting the blocks under on the front of the truck?
