Wheel and Tire selection for a 1970 Step Side

We are looking at a Hotchkis TVS suspension system for our project but are having trouble determining the potential tire and wheel size after a 4" front and 6" rear lower. Has anyone dealt with this suspension?

For information on tire fitment you can post your question in the wheel & tire board, too.

Any particular reason to run the Hotchkis vs. other options? The reason I ask, is because the Hotchkis setup hasn't really been the go-to for truck handling and there's better options.

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....
