    I'm getting a 6" lift and will be running 295/75/16 which is a little taller than a 33x11.50. I need to know beforehand whether or not my current wheels will fit with the lift because i have been told that some stock wheels wont fit after the lift is installed. I will be saving up for beadlocks in the future but dont see a need to buy cheap rims now only to buy more rims later...I would appreciate the help...And yeah that thing is completely Rhino Lined!

    wow is your truck painted flat black? and i dont think your wheels will have anough backspacing to fit those tires, maybe just run spacers till you get new wheels. if im wrong someone will correct me!

    wow thats sweet i actually thought about doin that but didnt have the balls! props for the indestructable paintjob i like it haha...as for the spacers all they do is move your wheels out away from the truck so the wider tires dont rub on anything, do a search on here im sure youll find were to buy them because i personally havent needed them but several people on here have. im sure they will chime in.

    For som reason i can only see the top half of the pic...The paint job, if you want to call it that haha, was $2700. You have to think how much it would cost just for a basic stock pant job.i think its 4-5000. This is my 4th Toy and it's going to be along project...Cant wait for the lift and tires. Thanks for the info. So you think 11.50s wll rub.. how wide are these stock rims?

    Yeah I know some 6" kits require 18's or larger. Find some steelies off a bigger truck and paint them black.

    You most likely will not be able to re-use your stock wheels. I know that if you go with the pro-comp or fabtech 6inch lifts that the stockers will not clear the new spindles provide with the kit. A good wheel spacer like one from spyder may work but adding spacers is never a good idea(IMO). Plus with that lift you can go bigger on the tires if you want. The 295's are not much bigger/taller than 285's they are just like half an inch wider.
