The truck on the left is a stock 07 Chevy 4X4 for comparison.

33x10.5x15 will clear on 6" spring lift, not 12.5 wide.

I am really wondering how a 6" lift would look with 31x10.5 tires? I will not be using the vehicle for serious or even moderate off-road, but rather just a cool day or two a week use; but certainly don't want the GW to look disproportionate like guys with 12" lifts and 225 tires!

Personally, I wouldn’t do it. Wouldn’t look right.

The 4” skyjacker made an enormous difference from stock height. Unless you’re trying to make up for something 4” is plenty.

Thanks everyone. I will stick with 4" or less.
