Lift/Tire Size Help!

alright guys im lifting a 2012 denali and was planning on going with the 6.5'' Bds lift with a 35'' toyo mt and 22'' wheel. Is a 35'' tire too small for this lift? I could go with a cognito 4-6 but shipping out of California to Illinois is awful! Any input would be greatly appreciated. im trying to stay away from a 37'' tire bc I don't really want that size of a truck. Thanks!

35s will look a little small with that much lift. Maybe consider getting a 4 inch lift and 35s?

Most 4 inch lifts will specify what offset you need to have on your wheels to not rub with 35s.

Go the 37 24 combo but go cognito, you will not regret it.
