Default 6" vs. 4" RC lift?

i have decided to lift it up with a full suspension lift instead of the RC level/body lift combo. i already have the tires that i will put on the stock 20's for now. they are 325/60/20 falken rocky mountain ats. i am having a hard time finding and comparing pictures of my truck body style with 4" and 6" lift. the few hundred extra bucks is not the issue...just trying to figure out what will look nice with the tires. another question i would have is will the stock wheels be okay without rubbing with either of those 2 lift kits without having to do anything more.

stock wheels will not rub, you can put stock wheels and 35s under a leveling kit and not rub, the problem is when you go to a wider rim with a aggressive offset that causes rubbing. Most sites say 35s with a 9'' wide wheel and 5 inch backspacing will not rub with a 4 inch lift. same for a 6'' lift with 37s. with a 10" wide rim or more aggresive offset hince 4.5" backspace a little trimming maybe required for rubbing at full lock steering and suspion flex. In my opinion 4" looks the best with 35s 6" with 37s.
