Running 37's w/ a leveling kit?

Was looking into getting the 2.5" leveling kit from ready lift and was wondering how 37's would look stuffed under there. It says they'll fit but only certain wheel sizes. Was looking for some pics to see how it looks or if it rubs too bad.

37's on stock wheels will be just fine with a leveling kit. Plenty of people doing that exact setup on here.

I just put my 37's on last Friday (37X13.5R-17 Toto Open Country MT) and I'm running the ReadyLift 2.5" kit you asked about.







The only rub was at full turn on the very bottom rear of both plastic front inner fender liners. Readylift gives you two brackets to pull the plastic toward the rear of the truck to resolve this. Instead, I took a small propane torch and warmed the plastic and slowly bent/formed it back away from the tires - worked GREAT! Brackets are still hanging on my garage wall! Do it... you'll love it!

That looks pretty bad *** man. I was looking into getting some 20's on 37's. What offset are your rims? I was talking to one of the local truck shops around here and he said I may have a problem depending on the offset. I like the way yours looks. I was thinking about getting the fender flares as well.

I like the look of yours. Something about the "stuffed" look seems better to me. I dont want to see a lot of space under the wheel well.

Thank you! The wheels are 17X8 Helo HE842's with 0.00mm Offset and 4.5" backspacing!

The blocks were either 4" or 5" - this is the kit I used:

Ford F250 Super Duty SST Hybrid Lift Kit: 2008-2010, 4WD Only - 2.5"/2.0"R

...the F-350 kit comes with shorter blocks!
