    Are you able to clear 35's now with no problem? I only ask since the backspacing and offset of the new wheels may affect your ability to fit 35's without more lift.

    You're going to have a lot of problems. Those wheels will cause a good amount of rubbing with a 6" kit.

    ima gona try 305 55 20s and see how that does and if i dont like it ill just lift it and put 35s or 38s depends on the lift. do yall recon 305s will fit it dont rub bad right now unless u cut it really deep and get it ina bind.

    No way 38s will fit with 6" of lift. 305's should be ok, since you said you did some trimming already. Additional trimming may be required though. Good luck.

    i know 35s go with a 6 inch 38s 9 plus
