    You can fit almost any size tires with a 6 inch lift. If you want to run 44s, you have to trim the fenders a lot. The larges size you can fit without any fender trimming is about 35s or mayb 36s.

    I always thought that 39.5's where about the biggest you could get without some problems...

    you need at least 8 inches of lift to fit 39.5s without any fender trimming. You might even need 10.

    Re: biggest tires with 6\" lift

    I have 35x14.50's swampers on 6.5"s of lift with the sway bar disconnected and the tires rearranged the sheet metal when i had the suspension compressed and the tired turned. Looking on ways of trimming or trimming and then putting on flares. Anyone have bad experiences with flares? - Doug

    The silver Sub is my daily driver/tow truck. No offroad plans for it right now.
