2/3 drop with beefy tires?

I need to replace my tires soon and get an alignment, as well as ball joints etc and have been pondering a small lowering kit down the road. Might as well plan ahead right?

What tire size will fit with a 2/3 drop with ZERO rubbing?

here's the truck:

30x9.5 on 15x7 wheels. I agree, I'm looking to drop to a slightly smaller tire.

Hmm i'm curious how that looks. Is that smaller in diameter than the stock tire size?
