35's with a 6" lift?

I know, I know it's out there somewhere I'm sure so give me hell if you will but...just wondering, has anyone done this? I just bought new 35x12.5s but found a hell of a deal for a 6" lift. Are there any pictures out there to see what I'd be looking like with that or should I just go through the headache of selling them and buying the 37's? I drive a 99 ccsb super duty(duh ) Thanks for the help boys and girls.

6" is a bit tall for 35's, 37's would fill out the space nicely. Keep in mind with 37's you are going to want to regear especially if you ever tow.

this much I realize, which gets costly quickly, i found this pic of a 03 with a 6" lift and 35's underneath it. IMO it don't look bad, and I have a feeling that personal preference is where this thread it headed. I tend to like the large gaps, but thats just me. I think to avoid cost right now im gonna leave the 35's on.

Im kinda in the same boat, im really wanting to lift, but just got tires....I think 35s look ok, until its time to get new ones...then i think uve got to step up to a 37....but for the time being i think a 35 looks fine...

Keep in mind that smaller tires will make your lift look bigger. I think the 35s on a 6" look good as long as their wide and nobby

But 37s would look sickkkk
