37s on Stock 20's?

Does anyone know if there is a 37x_x20 tire that will fit on the stock 20s?
Wanting to put on a lift and tires but really like the stock rims, searched a lot of the post and there seemed to really answer.

most 37" tires are at least 12.5" wide... IMO too wide for a stock wheel... they will bulg out.. if you ever plan to air them down i would be scared of you poping a bead...

my suggestion is sell yoru stockers and get something at least 9" wide.. pref 10" wide

its not safe, and a competent tire shop wont mount them, a 12.5 tire needs at least 9" of rim

the only 37 I know narrow enough to run on a stock wheel is the Interco IROK and even that is a little too wide..... the stock 20's are only 8 wides so an 11 wide tire is all you want to run on it...

can you do it....yes.... will you be ok? most likely.... could you have an issue? maybe

The Toyo says it will work on an 8.5" rim so you are pushing it but you should be fine

This is a good question ....
I also love my stock 20s. I want to lift it and put a 37x12.50 on them
I was thinking BFG ATs or the new MT km2s.
I know the 13.50 wide toyos wont fit but I was really hoping Id be ok with a 12.50.
Anyone ever heard of it going south on someone?

the other issue is going to be backspacking. Are the stock rims going to keep a 12.5 tire off the radius arms and inner fender?
