Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. If you have friends with the same rim fit but larger rims/tires, swap them for looks. A jacked truck with what appears under sized tires looks not too normal in my own opinion. Slightly larger tires or tires and rims will look more in tune with what you want if looks are a concern. Too large makes it look like a matchbox car and stupid again in my opinion.
I have the exact truck and all I did was crank the torsion bars to raise the front and put 285-75R16 (stock aluminum wheels) and I get tons of complements on the looks.
Tires that are wider will help restore some of the instability created by jacking the truck up. As for looks it will look a little funky with stock sized tires on it. Taller tires will also add ground clearance for the axles which a body lift cannot do.
