So my truck was stolen and found stripped of the rims and radio sitting on the frame on the street! The insurence might replace the wheels with the factory 17's but I have a 4/6 drop on my crew cab what tire size should I have them buy? I assume the stock size might not work. I was running a 265/35/22 just under 31" tall.

Go buy some stockers off Craigslist, they're more than plentiful in socal. Hopefully retail parts prices on new 17s + tires will put you on your way to recovering what you spent on the 22s.

Factory rims run very high from the factory, just go to a dealer, price them out and get the company to write a check for that and it will probably get you new 22s

I am talking to the insurence company and thats what I am gonna do but most auto body places dont buy brand new parts straight from GM plus they get em at a deal. I found a website that has the oem 17's for like $179 per so I am figuring they are gonna give me like $800 for the set
I had the factory set up but the wife ok'd a new top of the line alarm any suggestions?

$800 not including tires. wall together, your looking at at the least, $1300. You can pick up some decent wheel for that much.
