You should be good with that size without rubbing. Most guys on here get a 3.75" backspacing, which for a 9.5" wide rim the offset would be -38. If you plan on lowering the truck you will rub with those tires.

You are asking a ridiculously vague question. You need to provide a lot more information if you want opinions on a good setup.

There are a million rim/tire setups, literally. You aren't going to loose any advantages of owning a truck with a different rim/tire setup unless you go low profile. Low profile will reduce offroading capabilities.

What do you want simon? We can't tell you. Are you going to lower the truck, lift the truck? If so how much? What do you use your truck for? Your tire choices will drastically change due to ride height.

Ask specific questions. I can't give you a rim/tire choice so you have a "dam nice minitruck but don't lose advantages of having a truck"

First you said 260/60/r16, now you say 235/60r16. Which is it? And you wan't to lower it 4/5 inches but you don't want it to be slammed? That makes no sense.

Get the same size rims so you can rotate tires. Don't mix them.

Agreed. Give us an idea of the direction you want to go with the truck.

You say you want to lower it a little bit.. how much?

Do you want to take if off-road or strictly a street queen?

The advantages of having a truck are being able to haul stuff in the bed, so as long as you don't mess with that ability, you should be good ?
