Default 6.5" McGaughys lift and tires??

I am about to break down and buy a 6.5" McGaughys lift for my 2013 4X4 Super crew and wanted to get some input on wheels and tires. I will be running 35x12.50 and wanted to run a 20x10 wheel. I want the tires to stick out a bit. Would a -12 offset on a 20x10 wheel be the route to go? Any input is greatly appreciated!

I went with -12 on mine and I like the look. A set of Bushwacker flares completes the look.

Yes but you'll need to do some trimming.
What tires are you planning to run

6.5" McGaughys lift, -12 offset 20x9s and 35X12.50R20 Federal Couragia MTs

I cleared these on a leveling kit so a 20x10 should be fine, if you have to trim it should be minimal.

Hope this helps

That's a beautiful truck and the exact look I'm going for. How does the height compare to the fabtech or bds lifts? Does it sit a little higher? And also how is the ride quality?

[MENTION=50229]smcox1[/MENTION] I'm still trying to sort out how I'm gonna do it, whether I'm gonna go roof mounted or just put 2 20" bars in the grille with some various other lights. Can't decide and it's killin me.
[MENTION=155466]2013bluef150[/MENTION] I appreciate that man, I love it so far. It does sit a hair taller than a ProComp, I've got a buddy in the neighborhood with the 6" kit, same thing with the Fabtech kit but I am not sure about the BDS kit.

Do you have add a leafs on the back or does it have a small pre runner look?
