The most popular tire i see out here for your rig with a 3 inch lift are interco's 31" ltb's.

They do great here  8)

31s on factory wheels will rub the front LCAs a little at full lock.  But 8" wheels with more offset will get into the fenders when flexed out on a 3" lift.  So you have a couple options.. 

Buy LCAs that are made to clear oversized tires with factory wheels..

Buy 8" wheels with more offset and cut your fenders..

Or buy aftermarket wheels in 15X7 that have a -12 offset.  Your tires will still stay inside the fenders flexed out, and it will minimize LCA rub.
