Default Wheel/Tire fitment Question (for stock truck)

My truck is a 2011 4x4 Lariat SCREW. Currently it's leveled with an Autospring 2.5" leveling kit. I just found that my outer CV boot is leaking grease, and I suspect that it's the angle caused by the leveling kit that is causing it. So...

I am putting 20x9 Fuel Octane wheels with +14 offset and 285/60-20 Goodyear Duratrac's on. Will this combination fit on the truck without the level? Or will I need to install a 4" lift? Would the 4" lift put the suspension geometry back to normal? Not sure which direction to go here. I don't necessarily need to lift the truck, stock would be fine, I just want to put those rims and tires on it.

The 4 inch lift will return your geometry to normal angles to the proper parts if you wanted. As far as the boot leaking it really could be anything that is causing it as well as the leveling kit. Any tears or marks on it?
There are a lot of guys out there running that kit and I haven't seen anything on them having issues with that. Did you search past posts for anything? And a question. How in the hell do you only have 1700 miles on a 2011 model? Lol I think I ramped up 2000 my first month with mine.

LOL....I actually just bought it brand new a few months ago as a dealer stock hold over. It is basically new, and I have other vehicles to drive as well so I don't put that many miles on it. Now that winter is here I will definitely be driving it more.

sounds like I have some investigating to do and it may not be a leveling kit issue. Anyway, would that wheel/tire combination fit a stock 4x4 truck without a level or lift?
