Question Which 33" tire should I got with?

I am going to get a set of 22X10 wheels for my truck next weekend for sure. I know it should fit with my 6" fabtech... anyways I want to ride not too big or too small tires, so I thought 33" tires is good enough (285/50/22)if im correct? What would be the best brand to pick? thanks!!

33" seems a little small to me. I'd go with a 325/50R22 (35"). It would look much more proportional imo

I like the look of less tire more rim, I guess everyone has diff taste but 34's wouldnt look bad at all!

You need too go no less than 35 and no bigger than 37 the 22 will look weird on a 6 inch with less than a 35 you really need to go 37 it will look great

Go 37's. 33's are going to look lame. If you really want to run 33's put it back to stock hieght.

37's is the standard size to run w/ a 6 inch lift...

with the size wheel u have nothing will be cheap but nitto terra's would be pretty nice for the money. i have pro comp extreme all terrains and i like them a lot because they arent quite a mud tire (they wear better) but it is more than just an all terrain... hence extreme all terrain lol
