Has anyone seen 6" on 38s?

Just was wondering has anyone tried 38s on 6" lift? I know I have seen plenty of 6" on 37s. wondering if it would work?

your gonna do some trimming and the tires will be stuffed in the wheel wells if you try it..give them a little more space and ride on 8"inches instead..

all depends on how wide the tire is... im sure it can fit with a lil trimming but if you go with like 15.5 wide i doubt you will be able to turn without major rubbing

I ran 6 inches on 40/15.50/22's when I 1st had that setup surprisingly they fit pretty well just could turn very sharp or it would rub the inner fender well

I'm not planning to ha I would rather go smaller than trimming I was just wondering if anyone had tried it and how tight it would be. I know I have seen a guy with 6" and 40s/20s on his harley edition.

It depends on wheel offset and tire width. I ran my 38x15.50 Toyo MTs and my KMC Monsters for a few days with my 6" Fabtech before putting my 8" on. They fit and I could drive around but I would have never taken it offroad and I had to be careful because I'm sure if I would have hit a bump hard with the tires turned I would have jacked up my fender.

i have 8.5 inches of lift. with 38x15.50 and i still cant cut the wheel alll the way. and i jacked my fenders up from hitting a bump with the wheel cut.
i would go with a 36x14.50 or 15.50 instead of a tall skinny 37x12.5 or 13.5
I dont like tha wagon wheel look imo

that's probably becuz they are a 15.50 and the wheel offset is making it rub

Matty, is your truck an '08? Just curious because the '08 has a bigger fender cut out so if you have the older body style I can see that happening. With an 8" on 38x15.50's I don't rub at all.
