Pro Comp 6inch Stage II...Do I use 35"s or 37"s

I have just purchased a Pro Comp Stage 2 MX6 adjustable resi suspension lift with duel shock hoops for my 06, 6.0. I have Toyo MT 35x12.5x20 now but i am worried that the tires will look too small under the the 6 inch lift?? Does any one have any pics of a six inch lift with 35" tires. I have another week before I get all the parts and only want to go to the shop once. ???

The reason for buying the lift in the first place was to avoid the 35" tires not to looked stuffed under the truck. Now I my worries that I am going to the other extreme.

I think that the 35s are going to look a little small. You probably should have gone with a 4 inch lift if you wanted to keep the 35s. My 37s almost look too small for me with my 7 inch lift. ill probably do 38s next time.

35s won't look terrible, 37s will look better. how wide of a wheel are you running? i think that's what makes a tire size and lift combo match well.

i had 35s on a 4" lift but on stock wheels and it looked goofy.

I am going to run with my Toyo, MT 35x12.5/20 on 20inch Ion 20x9rims. The pic I have is stock hight with no lift, with the tires and rims i will have with the 6inch lift... So should I spend 1200 on new 37"s when I have only had these 35"s for 1K miles. I hate how they look with no lift, but am worried about over doing the lift for these meats??? I was hoping to get some pics of trucks with a 6inch lift and 35"tires???

I have a stage 1 and have had both 35's and 37's - go with the 37's. The pcx track bars will help stiffen up the slop in the rear.

I'm running a 6.5" lift with 37x12.50 r17 and I think they look kinda small, hopefully next week I'll be getting 22" rims if I can make up my mind and 37" nitto mud grapplers
