6" lift with stock platinum wheels?

Will this work? Was thinking about 37x12.5x20 on the stock rims? Anyone else running this setup? Don't want the truck to look stupid. But I had ordered a truck from the factory but it's delayed because of the elocker back order? So I got a in stock platinum instead. Thanks!

I don't think there's anything wrong with that combination as long as you're happy with the stock platinum wheels. You can probably get away with a 4.5" lift without having any real contact issues given that the stock wheels are 20x8. Here are some 35x12.5x20s mounted on stock platinum wheels with a 2.5" level...

You're probably gonna need a set of wheel spacers to push the factory rims out enough to clear the radius arms b/c of the offset on the stock wheels or else it's gonna rub like a s.o.b

I don't want to "probably" get it done. I don't want to rub... Maybe I will stick with a four inch lift. Why would they rub? It's not that much of a wider tire?

it has to do with how much the stock wheels are "tucked" under the truck...turn your steering wheel hard over and see how close the stock size tires get to the radius arms, now picture those huge toyos on there and you get the picture...
