Default wheels and tires on a 05 chevy 3/4 ton , possible lift?

my budys dad wants to put a little bigger tire on his truck and save the stock wheels and tires for the winter. any suggestions on what to buy for a wheels and tires package? he talked about putting a small lift on it, what are his options there and is it expensive? i have another buddy who did something with the tortion bars to put bigger tires on his truck. if anyone knows of a good buy on new or used let me know. or just of any sort of input!
thanks nick

how big of a tire is he looking to go?

I had 285/70-17s on H2 on my last truck (03 Chevy 2500HD 6.0). I didn't mess with the torsion bars, but I had to trim a little bit off the lower air dam on the front bumper and a little from the plastic wheel well on the front of the driver's front tire. It had a little bump that got in the way of the tire.

I have a friend that runs a 305/70-17 on H2s with only a torsion bar adjustment, and another that runs 315/70-17 on H2s with a bumper spacer (moved the bumper out a little) and new torsion keys to level it out.
