Default Tire size concern with 6" lift

im just about ready to pull the trigger on getting a 6" lift but im really firm on getting the 325/60/r20 duratracs. Im just curious if they would look to small/odd with a 6" and if i should maybe go to a 4"?

what does everyone think of these rims on a white dodge?

those tires will look fine with a 6" lift.


not a fan of the wheels, but it's not my truck.

Yup, as gonefishin said, those tires will look fine. Search fastNugly on the forum. At one point he was running that size tire on his truck with a 6" lift and Bilsteins at 1.4". That will give you an idea of what it will look like.

I'm personally not a fan of those wheels either. But everyone has different ideas and taste in wheels so go with what you like, not what others like.

^ I concur with the 2 masterminds above me. The 6" will look fine, but I also am not a huge fan of the wheels. But to each their own. The thing with a 4" and a 6" lift.. Is the 6" is barely more money then the 4" with more parts, so why not just get the 2" if your already doing it up.

i guess i have a few more questions that i ran across earlier today

i take it you guys dont like the rims but the tires you dont mind? only reason i choose duratrac is cause the truck will be mostly DD. about 80/20 to 70/30 DD. any other tires you guys might suggest and/or recommend a size? ill be doing alot of snow wheeling.

My main question that i came across today is that i heard Pro comp has been having issues in colder climates (Alberta). I called a truck place today and thats what they told me. they only put BDS on vehicles. is this BS? how good is the procomp brand?

thanks guys

I'm not a big fan of goodyear tires but the duratracs are good tires. If I could run super swampers all year without killin mpg and wear.. I would, so that hints at my opinion on tires. The toyo open country M/T's are excellent mud tires for the mix of off/on road. I think the toyo ATs are also excellent tires for all round. BFG A/T are decent too. If you are talking about the pro-comp lift kits. I have never heard anything about that. BDS lifts are amazing lift kits though, excellent quality and haven't heard a complaint yet.

Well, I'll be the sore thumb of the bunch, I like the wheels! And Fuel is a good brand. The duratracs are a fantastic tire. The company I work for uses those and the bfg all terrain. Id personally go with the duratracs. Good looking tire and performs well in all conditions IMHO!
The Nitto Terra Grapplers are good tires as well. I ran them on my lifted grand cherokee.

I would have to agree with the above posts , your should be fine with those wheels and tires on a 6" lift, if you are going to go a procomp lift you will likely down the road wish you had not as it is better to have lift coils in the rear instead of lift blocks if you will. The only way I would do a procomp lift (and did one on a 2012 that I had) would be to do the front half procomp and the rear either Rough Country or BDS, but this would void any kind of warranty provided from the manufacturer.

Much better off IMO to go with BDS if BDS is not in the budget then I would go with Rough Country or Zone.

If you need a hook up in Canada reach out to us we can get you lift/wheels/tires whatever you need for that truck for the most part at very reasonable prices and almost always 5-15% less that what you would pay locally if not more on some things.

Thanks
Jeremiah

I can vouch for the their great deals. Got my 35" toyos mounted on 17" XD addicts with TPMS, locking lugs mounted and balanced shipped to my house.. Was still cheaper then buying in Canada, was also cheaper then going over to a tire shop in buffalo to buy the stuff.

I drive too much highway to lift my truck, but as far as wheels go I really think a white sport should have all black wheels.
