With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

18 and up are what most people roll on their 6" lift. It gives a bigger tires for them and I think the 18/20 are perfect sizes. Not too big; not too small.

I say 17's because the more side wall the better, and the more rubber the more it looks like a truck and not a pretty street queen.

I read on the procomp site they reccommend at least an 18 inch wheel for the 6 inch lift

Im sure a 17" will fit but it'll be close. I would just save the trouble and get what ProComp says to get.

heres a guy with 35" tires and 20" Ultra wheels.

Not sure a 17 would even fit. The ones I have seen with 18's have been pretty close to the spindle.

17's will fit but you have to have at the most 4.65" back spacing...

18's is the minimum requirement for the FJ Cruiser lift...

but I have also heard that procomp redesigned the drop bracket for the strut bar and also redesigned the steering knuckled...on procomp's website it still says 4.65" max backspacing but I have heard that some guys are running 17x9" wheels with 5" backspacing without the rim touching the steering knuckle...is this true?

It all depends on the truck . Procomp says if u have a 09 or 10 with vsc u need at least 18inch wheels. Although Black beauty is running 17s on her 2010. She had told me there was very little clearance so she would also go 18 if she had to do it again. Fabtech says 17s will work on 09 or 10 .

sounds like an 18 would be best to play it safe.
