33x10.5 vs. 33x12.5

Stability-wise what would be a better tire to purchase with a 6in lift? The higher I go the wider my tire should be, right?

yeah..... but you really should not have a problem when doing 6 in. of lift. I'm running 33x10.5 with the RCD kit right now with no problems. I went with a skinny tire because I like the look, less paint chips with stock flares, and they are a little better in snow. I dont think you can go wrong either way.

IMO, I don't like the way the tire sticks out on the 33x12.5 and would prefer to go with the 33x10.5 if stability is not an issue.

if you go with the 12.5 you will lose more power than you would if you went with the 10.5.

I would go with 12.5. you wont loose that much power with the extra inches.

IMO if you drive in snow alot get the skinner ones. But since you live in LA go with the wider tires.

I'd go with 33x12.5 on an 8" wheel. I don't like 10" wide wheels on any tire smaller than a 35.
