08 Silverado Lift/Tires Question
I am planning on lifting my 08 Silverado in the next month or so. I would like to go with a 4in ProComp lift. I would also like to be rolling on 35's. Would a 4in lift provide enough ground clearance for the tires? I wouldn't want t have to worry about rubbing or troubles when offroading.
Any advice would be appreciated!

With the 4" lift, 35's would be a tight squeeze. You could run 33's with a 4" lift. The price difference between the 4 and 6 inch lifts is usally around $100 so why not go 6"?Darcy

I think 6 inch would look nice, but 4 is more practical for offroading and everything that I plan to do. Would 33's look small on a 4in lift? One of my friends is running 32's and they look pretty small w/ a 4in.

I guess it all depends on how big of wheels you have. The smaller the wheel, the bigger the tire looks. A 33" tire on 17" wheels looks smaller than the same tire on 16" wheels.2006 Silverado Z71 - 97,000 - totaled, RIP

IMO, there isn't much difference between a 4" and a 6" lift, except 35s look sweet on the new silverado under a 6" lift. 4" lift w. 35s would be very very stuffed and they would rub, a lot.

First of all ProComp doesn't make a 4" lift. I think you can get a leveling kit but the lifts start at 6". One of the guys I work with did a 4 and hated life with 35s. Ended up changing it to a 6" and is very happy. If you decide to go with a 4 Rancho was the only name brand that I could find that offered one. My 08 3500 will be done tomorrow night. I'll post some picks (6" RCD lift with 35x12.5x20 Toto MTs and Ultra 20 chromes). Can't wait!
