Why 12.5s, I'd do 14.5 or 15.5 or drop the lift down to 4".

Closer to 7" in front, 35x12.50R18 Toyo MTs. Livable, but better suited to 37s

I have 35's on my leveling kit, I think they would be too small on a 6".

5" on 35x12.5's. Could probably squeeze 37's in there.

Thanks!

I understand that I'd be better off with something else... It's just an option that I'm considering until I get my 36x15.50's and 18 or 20" wheels...

35x12.50R16's are cheap and easy to find.

Notice I said "live-able"........

What size lift are you running now? 38's right?

Here's mine on 6.5" of lift, 325/65r18's so 34.6 tall...too small IMO, will be moving up to a larger tire shortly

You may want to look into that. I know several people have asked about 36x15.50's on a 6" before. I think its a NO GO. Gonna probably take 8" of lift. The width is the killer. Alot of too depends on your backspacing.

i ran 36x14.50 on a 6" for a while, ran fine. Way less spring rub than i have now :doh: The only time i could get spring rub was locking the wheel full turn and it would only rub if the ground wasnt flat (curb or pot hole or something) and that was on some 12" wide wheels (i think). I still have the wheels and i could measure the back space but im guessing it was probably 4.5" So if your running a 15.50 J i would go with a 4" backspace or less and you should have minimal spring rub at the most i would imagine...

I'll still be able to adjust lift as needed... So if I need a little extra for the 36's, it'll be there. Or I can cut... No big.
