Curious about tire size for 6" lift?

It all depends on your driving style..

hardcore offroad...36"
mild offroad,..mostly street...37"
street queen....38"

But even then is depends on the brand of tire you choose,...some run wider than others..

And ....my definition of "FIT" and other peoples definition of "FIT" are different....



no lift, cut-outs and 36's





4.5" lift, cut-outs, and 41's.....don't fit,......extremely minor rubbing on radius arms.










if it rubs even a teeny tiny bit,...then it doesnt' "FIT"

Well the lift doesnt matter either a 4.5" or 6" from icon. But would like to see a set of Nitto AT's under there 36 or 37 but something w/ the wider look. I have 17x9 wheels w/ -12mm and -4.5 offset. Would 37 13.5 fit under w/ a 6" lift?

if you have the right backspacing, and a little triming it will fit on a 6" lift... as long as you arent offroading hard

What would need trimming? The front fenders I assume? Who makes the fender covers for that app? And whats the best backspacing?
