    Actually, with the 6'' lift and VSC, you can't run 16's at all even with spacers. (correct me if I'm wrong)

    one day....
    on a 2nd gen. mainly a 2010 i know about but you have to run 18's with a 6 inch lift because of your steering. over time it will snap. happened to a bud of mine one his 09 but i may be wrong. i am getting my 6 inch lift soon and i am going with 18 to be safe

    Its not the VSC always, You need the larger rims for the VSC, correct but also the tie rods are flipped causing contact on the rims if its not properly backspaced/spacers

    So to clarify my current tire setup is 285/75/16 on the stock 16" rims. I also already own 1.25" spidertracs. Does anyone know if i can run that rim setup with a 6" lift?
