Installed the Toyo's today...

They are 37's. They did rub on the inner fender but I took care of that. I also found the rub at full turn but I don't usually turn that hard anyway so shouldn't be too big a problem. Truck looks good to me. The way you would think it should from the begining. They do humm on the road but not bad. Next is to see how bad they are on mpg. The installer even remarked on how good the truck looked now. I know, truck is filthy but it just snowed a little and way to cold to wash right now. Thanks to everyone on here with 37's for answering my questions and causing me to spend the money.

truck looks good, i think its funny how the 99-04 SDs need 8" 05-07s need 6" and the 08+ only needs a leveling kit to run 37s

Ford must use some sort of air compressor to install their wheel weights. Every wheel has a nice mark where the old weights were. Anybody have any good suggestions for cleaning this up? I tried some wheel cleaner and even a clay bar but I still have some pretty nasty marks.

I just went from Toyo 35X12.5R17's to 37X13.5R17's about 6 weeks ago - I am using a GPS to get the miles right and I dropped almost 2mpg with the 37's I've checked it 5 times now and it's true - I'm running 3.73's and don't plan on spending $$ to change those so I guess we live with it? Let me know how your mileage turns out and don't forget to get an accurate reading on miles with a GPS or something.

Happy Holidays to everyone on the "ORG" too!
