6" lift.....what size wheels & tires?
So Im finally deciding to go with a 6" lift on my truck, but Im trying to decide what to do about wheels & tires. I think I want to run a smaller less shiny wheel for a while. Should I do 16's, 17's, or 18's? Anyone have any pictures of a truck with a 6" with small wheels & somewhere around 35" tires?

What kit are you going with? You need to check with the manufacturer of your lift to see what size wheels will fit with your lift since most 6 inch lifts come with new knuckles.

canislupis69 im running the rough country 6" I think it requires 17" ims & up so i think im staying with my 20's but getting a bigger tire. Do you think if i had to ride on the 33's for a little while that it would look real bad?

ive got the FTS 6.5" lift with 16x10 wheels and 33" toyos
i think 35s will look much better but they will have to wait till i can afford tires AND gears AND a programmer (so i guess never)
