    6\" Lift and 33\"s?

    Is this a good combo or should I go with 35's? I have brand new 33's on it right now. I could probably find something else for them to do.

    Re: 6\" Lift and 33\"s?

    Your going to look kinda goofy. Tires will look real small on 6" lift. 4" & 33's is ok looking but 6" is a little tall. Leaves alot of room between the tires and fenders.

    my friend has 6" and 33s, they are WAY too small, with a 6" you need at least a 35 tire but usually bigger.

    6 inches is way to much lift for 33's, it would look goofy. i got 6 on mine with 35's and wish i would have either gone with 4 inches of lift with the 35 or 6 inches with a 38 inch tire. hope this helps

    Stock springs and bald 30's look small, So I imagine that 33's with 6 inches of lift will look small too /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    If you trim the fenders 35's will look goofy on a 6" lift. I trimmed mi fenders for 35's and a worn out 4" and Im dreading what its gonna look like when I put the 6 on.

    Re: 6\" Lift and 33\"s?

    What about 4" and 31's? /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif That's what I'll be running until I can get some money for tires.

    Yeah, I had to go with 31” with a 4” lift for about two days. I wouldn’t even drive it.

    Re: 6\" Lift and 33\"s?

    6 inch and 33's looks goofy?

    what about those IFS show trucks with 15 inches of lift and 44's

    those things look plain retarded

    if the tire is super wide, like 13-15 inches, than i think it wouldnt look that horrible

    I run 5 inches with 33's and it looks ok. Check in my album here on ck5. It allows for a lot of flex with no trimming or rubbing

    Re: 6\" Lift and 33\"s?

    So, 36 or 37's will fit under a 6" lift? I think that would be the way to go. Anybody have a picture of this setup?

    [/ QUOTE ] I've been told meny times that once you get over 35" tires, it's not a matter of if you'll break something, but more of when you'll break something. Now with that being said, some people have ran larger then that tires for years on stock axles (REGEARED) without any problems.

    I had 6" springs up front,a 2" body lift,37s, and I still had to trim my fenders quite a bit.The springs were nothing fancy either,just regular old Pro Comps /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    6" and 33's looks goofy my ass. Here's mine when I had 6" and 33x14.50 SSR's on 10's, I wish I would hav had 12's though, would have looked better.
