Tire size and lift

Would 35's look too small for a 6" lift? Does anyone have any pictures of a 6" lift with these size tires?

Photo in my sig. is a 6" Rough Country. Not the same year but should give you an idea. I'll be moving up to 36's or 37's, but it looks good till then.

IMO 35" would look better on a 2.5" lift..I can email you pictures of pics of 35-2.5" 35 on 4.5" and 37 on 6", files are to large to post..

6" lift you need atleast 37" tires. 35" look nice at stock height . 35's with a 6" looks funny . I'd go 36x15.50 on a 6" . Looks better IMO . I hate tall skinny tires. I had 36x15.50's MTZ's on my 08 with 6" lift with no problems and it looked killer

Here is mine with 2.5 on 35s. For a 6" 37s for sure is the right way to go.

As said above, 37s for a 6" lift look decent, 35s are better for 2.5-4.5

Josh, love those rims. Are they worth the money and how's the upkeep on them?

Matty said it best. 35s fit stock so why should you do a 6" lift? With a 6" lift you need 37s. 35s look ok up to a 4.5", you can also fit 37s on a 4.5" lift.
