    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?

    6"lift .....what size wheels and tires?

    I have a 6" lift, 35s and 17X9 wheels. I run either BFG A/Ts or BFG M/Ts. I have one photo on my album. My truck is a 05 Z-71.

    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?

    they're 20x10's.....scrubbed a little when i first got em, but a little trimming fixed it.

    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)
