    It depends on how you want it too look but a wider tire may give you more stability with the lift.

    Am I correct with this fellas??

    u dont 'need' to get new tires b/c of a lift, but a 3" lift on stockers will make the tires look dinky. hell, a 3" front and back lift on mine makes my 32" tires look dinky
