Tasteful, your suspension setup is what I was imagining for my truck. Although I have 17x8 steel wheels, I am running 235/55r17 which is a little bit shorter than the stock tire. It rides noticeably firmer but overall much nicer than the 215/70r16 wheel/tires that came off. It does look a little small in the wheel well, but I think it would be fine with a lower truck like yours.

Your tires look like they fit the wheel wells nice, so a size with the 18's that have a similar diameter would likely suffice. An online tire size calculator might be a help here.

About the width, I find it is best to slightly "stretch" the tire for the wheel for the best handling. Cramming a too wide tire onto a wheel causes the tire to "roll" sideways in a corner making the steering less predictable/sharp.
