6" Lift, Tire Size Recomendation

I have a 2001 2.4l 2wd frontier. I have a 3" body lift and new UCA's and Shackels. Making it 6" in the front and 4.5" in the back. Now i know that bigger tires will slow me down so im gettin a wep-r intake and pacesetter headers to make up for the lost HP. I want to run a MT tire and Cragar soft 8 wheels from summit. I want to know if you all have any idea of what size tire and wheel combination would be the best for my truck. I was thinking of 32x1100x15 on 15x8 wheel.

Thanks for any help.

265 is the width, 70 is the height in relation to the width, and 16 is the wheel size. metric can get confusing but once you in it for a little bit it really becomes easy to understand. A 32 will be expensive because its not a common size anymore. Going to a 16 opens up your metric options to really find a tire that will fit you opening well. If you get a side shot of the truck and let me know whats on there know i could probably give you a ball park of what could work.
That should work out pretty well id think. With your motor and lift set up you plan to run a 32 should look good. Still have fender clearance for good uptravel and not kill your engine trying to push heavy tires around. Id say go for it.
The p265/75-16 might be a little small. Id say take it to a shop and grab a 265 and a 285 and see which one looks better. A 265 should fit no problem, a 285 might fit and look a ton better though. Wost case youd have to do a little fender trim to fit the 285 if you really push it up in the fenders.
