13.50's to wide for a factory 18" rim?

Are 13.50's to wide for a factory 18" rim on a 08 super duty? If the factory rim is not wide enough I have other rims that'll be fine but I like the look of big tires on factory rims. Also I have a 2.5" leveling kit w 2" add a leafs in the rear... Will I have any problems clearing 37x13.5x18s? Thanks

So the tires will fit my factory rim? Or clearing them underneath the truck? Or both...?

IMO, that's too wide, I wouldn't go any narrower than a 10" wheel. You'll also be rubbing the radius arms pretty good so you'll lose some steering.

If you do get them mounted by a shop, some wont do it, they will rub as stated above.

Also, they will wear funny and in the end you wont get the full life out of them.
