4" lift, stock 20" wheels, 35-12.50's

Who's done it? What kind of rubbing if any? Anyone have 37's? Seems they would fit? I searched, couldn't find this info. Thanks ya'll.

4" and 35's is what I've got. No rubbing unless your crossed up a bit. I'm pretty sure going up to 37's is going to make some annoying rubbing situations.

Thanks. I'm considering the 6" Pro Comp and 35's or 37's. This truck is a pavement queen and never gets crossed up. If anyone knows if this works great. I do not want aftermarket wheels, I prefer the stock wheels.

Well, I have the 8+ BDS lift kit... all springs... with 37's no probs... been thinkin of going smaller though... was going to try and get about 4" and stuffin them, I figure u can run 35's stock with leveling, why not 37's with a couple more inches???

That's my thought exactly. Mine is a 2005. We'll see, still debating this. Thanks for the input.

the offset on the wheels is gonna present a problem once you to with 37's i think they will rub the inner fender when turning.... plus stock wheels are only 8" wide if im right which youll only be able to get 12.5" wide tires at the most

I agree. In order to get mine to fit, I had to go to a more agressive offset (5.5, I believe) and I have minor rubbing with my 33's. Oh and my tires are 13.5" wide...

8" wide wheels with a 12.5 is fine. Ran wider tires than that on them, just have to keep up with the pressure to keep the contact patch within reason. The offset is the concern for me. I know on my 05 F-150 I was able to fit 35" Nitto Mud Grapplers on the truck, but had to use the stock wheels due to the offset issue, it was the key to 35's with a leveling kit. Do you happen to know the offset offhand by chance?
