Tire size for 6" lift??

I'm ready to buy some new tires.. I was thinking about going with the Nitto Trail Grapps in 295 70 17. I'm going to be installing a 6" lift before getting the tires. Is 295 70 17 a little bigger than a 33? I don't want to go 35s because I don't wanna lose power. But I don't wanna go too small either. Any thoughts on how the 295 70 17 would work?? I also seen 305 70 17, would that be better or too big?

295 and 305 is the width of the tire.

I'd run 305, then cut or hammer what the tire rubs on

37s are the biggest tires you can get that the IFS can handle.

Thank you for all the info, I was thinking of running either a 295 70 17 or a 315 70 17. Seems they dont make the 305 70 17 in the tire I want. Now just to decide between these 2.
