Re: 6" lift...

35's will look fine but 36's or 37's would look better. What size wheel are you looking to go with? or are you keeping the stockers?

Re: 6" lift...

They are offering more tires now in the larger rim sizes. Id go with 18's probably if I was to do it over again. But you can run 35's or 37's on the stock wheel. I dont think it looks bad at all. I ran my 35x12.5's on stock wheels for a good while till I could afford the upgrade.

Re: 6" lift...

I agree that 36" or 37" would suit it best. Are your factory rims 16x8.5?

I don't intend to hijack, but whay rim/tire size do you use, Farm Boy? And why would you choose 18's?

Re: 6" lift...

here is a pic for ya even though its an 05 truck and not a 99-04 style.

4" RCD lift 325/65R18 Nitto Terra Grapplers



I would think anything from a 35" to a 37" would work good with a 6" kit. Best place to get a good idea on proportions and such is Truck Toyz Performance .. Experience Matters! and check out their install gallery.

I like em for street tires but wanting to try something different after getting stuck a few times in mud and wet heavy snow, they pack in quick)

I got about 20K on them currently and they have at least 1/2 the tread still left. Work pretty good in most all daily road conditions. Pretty quiet and relatively cheap compared to other similar sized tires, I paid $240 a piece compared to almost $300 for many of the decent MT tires.
