    What do you mean they would rub if have 35's, the kit says 35's would fit?

    Fitting may still entail a need to trim.

    Ahh okay. Would I better getting a 20x8.5 or 20x10 rim? What's the difference? I think I want to get with a 6" lift but 33"s tires so I don't strain my trans a lot

    I was addressing the op (the guy who started the thread).

    Sharp looking truck. I was wondering if you know what backspacing your wheels are and are you running any wheel spacers?

    You did the right thing. I have a 6" Superlift suspension lift and my 35's have some "light rubbing" as well after I trimmed the plastic...granted they are 12" wide. With a 3" lift I think you're better off with 33's & they look good on your rig. Is that a body lift?

    IMO if you lift your truck 6" you should run 35's. Wheel size should depend on the size/tread tire you want to run and the ride you'd like to have. Keep it proportionate or it will look ridiculous and you won't end up happy with it. And when you do lift it, regardless of lift height or tire size, get yourself a programmer and change your shift points to match your kit. If this all sounds foreign to you, leave your truck stock or take it to a shop who knows what they're doing. You can lift your truck without hurting it if you do it correctly. Personally I lift everything and say go for it.
