I've seen 6" with 37"s and they didn't have a problem. Just depends on the set up of the truck and trailer.

So no one ever told you the tralier should ride level, or close to it... That is not safe. Not in the least.

I would be very afraid of going any bigger than 4" if at all. I stayed with just leveling my truck out because I've had a couple close calls on inclines with mine at stock height on 35s.
